9. Stuart Broad:
Stuart Broad and James Anderson are considered to be one of the most lethal opening ball bowlers around the world. And this year, it was the turn of the taller mate, to make the openers jump and duck, and to get the new ball talking. It’s the length of the Stuart Broad that makes him such a dangerous customer as he bowls just at the right length to coax out an edge from the batsman. He is a smart, thinking cricketer and has scalped 56 this year which included a breath taking spell of 9 overs, 15 for 8, against the Aussies. He uses his height well and puts it up at that awkward height, leaving the batsman perplexed about whether to get back or to move forward. He thus fits in well to spear head the attack with James Anderson and to make the new cherry count.
