England bowler Stuart Broad has announced he will be retiring from all cricket after the final Ashes Test.

Broad made his decision “at about 8.30pm” and informed his team-mates James Anderson and Joe Root of his decision before play against Australia. Broad, who has taken 602 wickets in 167 tests, will leave the game as the second most successful paceman in Test history behind teammate James Anderson, and fifth overall.

He made his debut for the England Test side in December 2007 and have won 167 caps. He also recently passed the 600-wickets milestone for his country during the ongoing Ashes. He has played in every home Ashes Test since his first series against Australia in 2009, claiming 104 wickets at 26.56 in those 25 Tests.

Broad will now join Sky Sports’ commentary, after deciding to quit playing while still at the top of his game rather than hold on to tour India in early 2024.
