Stuart Broad, the veteran bowler, has supported England Test captain Ben Stokes’ aggressive brand of cricket, which has revolutionized the red-ball format.
The England Test squad has done admirably since Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes took over as captains. England has strived for positive outcomes, and the squad has won seven of their previous nine Tests.

Stuart Broad Praise Bold Attitude Of Ben Stokes
Broad lavished praise on Stokes, praising his bold attitude. The Nottinghamshire pacer said in a video posted by Sky Sports on its Twitter account:
“This is very much look for wickets. Even if you look at Stokesy at mid-on and say ‘do you think we can lose the fifth slip here?’ and he is like, no. He is so authentic in how he plays the game. He is very attacking, he wants to take the game on.
“There will always gonna be criticism of how he gets out,” he added. “I think he has been caught at cover 75 times in the last year but he wants to show how he wants his team to play. If he gets out by being over-attacking, that is almost a positive in showing that there are no consequences in taking the game forward.”
England’s aggressive will has provided much-needed fire to Test cricket, making the game more appealing to fans.
Currently leading 1-0, the tourists will attempt to win the second Test at the Multan Cricket Stadium, which begins on Friday, December 9. With another flat surface available, Stokes chose to bat first after winning the toss. England has made another quick start, amassing 86/1 in 16 overs and scoring at a pace of 5.38.
The only guy removed was Zak Crawley, who struck a superb century in the previous game. At the time of writing, England’s Ben Duckett (39* off 35) and Ollie Pope (25* off 24) are in the middle.
