Stuart Broad Smashes Fastest Test Fifty Record

Stuart Broad Smashes Third-Fastest Test Fifty for England, Joins Andrew Flintoff and Allan Lamb in Elite List

Stuart Broad swung his bat and swing the tides once again in England’s favour on day 2 of the ENG vs WI 3rd Test match in Manchester.

Broad scored 62 before sweeping straight to Jermaine Blackwood off the bowling of Roston Chase. But by then, he had already smashed England’s third-fastest fifty in Test matches.

Broad’s 62 runs comprised of nine boundaries and a maximum in just 45 deliveries and he helped England cross the 350-run mark after losing four quick wickets in the opening session of day 2 in the third Test.

Broad smashed the Windies bowlers all around the park and reached his half-century in just 33 deliveries equaling the record set by Allan Lamb and Andrew Flintoff. Broad now has scored the joint-fastest Test fifty for England in 33 deliveries. Legendary all-rounder Ian Botham scored the two fastest half-centuries for England.
