Stuart Broad and Mollie’s love story dates back to when they were first romantically linked in March 2018. But just five months later in August that year, their relationship seemed to have hit the rock bottom as they broke up. However, it did not take the love birds long to get back together. Later, they revealed they had given their love a second chance a month later.
Recently, Mollie had revealed she felt anxious about Stuart Broad jetting to Sri Lanka to play for England. The European country is set to visit Sri Lanka this month for a two-match Test series before flying to India for four more Tests in addition to the white-ball games.
“So it’s 2021! If you’re anything like me you might be going into this year feeling a bit anxious and uncertain. I often get the January blues and this year is going to be especially tough with everything that’s going on.
“@stuartbroad also goes away tomorrow with cricket which is always a mix of feeling excited for him but knowing I’m going to miss him so much,” Mollie wrote on Instagram.
Meanwhile, Stuart Broad had a fine outing in Tests in 2020. The veteran pacer ended the year as the highest wicket-taker in Tests. He picked up 38 wickets in 8 Tests and also crossed the 500-wicket mark in Tests. The right-arm year was later nominated for Sports Personality Of The Year but lost out to Formula 1 star Sir Lewis Hamilton.
