Stuart Broad is England’s pantomime villain for this Ashes tour, and plans are in place to give him a massive serve of Aussie love on Boxing Day.
A Facebook event has been created called ‘Boo stuart broad’s first delivery at the MCG’, imploring the crowd to let Broad have it when he steams in for his first delivery during the Boxing Day Test at the G.
A similar event was set up last year, asking fans to yell a co-ordinated shout of ‘Nice Garry!’ when Nathan Lyon bowled his third ball of the Test.
Those plans were scuppered when Lyon took a wicket, with Pakistani batsman Sami Aslam edging to first slip.
Hopefully Broad doesn’t have the same effect this time around.
