Many cricketers have been seen or spotted enjoying the time with their families. However, Stuart Broad is doing what he does the best, spending time on social media.

Stuart saw this question and jumped on to give the answer. According to the English seamer, the three players who he followed the most while growing up were Glenn McGrath of Australia, Shaun Pollock of South Africa and Brian Lara of West Indies.

His choice of these three cricketers is quite obvious, looking at the style with which he plays. For example, Broad is a right-arm fast bowler who resembles the speed and accuracy of that of Shaun Pollock and Glenn McGrath. Apart from this, the English legend is also a left-handed batsman and Lara has been one of the best left-handed batsmen to have ever played the game. So, the choice for Broad was not a difficult one.
The 33-year-old seamer, who had made his test debut in 2007, has gone on to play 138 test matches. During his this, he has picked up 485 wickets in Tests, which is only second to James Anderson in terms of wickets in Test matches. In fact, considering his age, he could break the record of his own hero. Glenn McGrath had 563 wickets at the time of his retirement and the record isn’t a far fetched dream for Broad anymore.
