After consecutive Test wins, England require a victory to wrap up the series against India at the first time of asking, and Broad believes that being in his most comfortable setting will help him propel his side to victory.
“It’s always a special feeling here walking through the gates. As an England side we’ve had some wonderful results here. It’s probably the perfect ground to be coming to 2-0 up,” he said. “I thrive off international cricket and big series and hopefully I can perform here.
“Even little things like knowing the staff, saying hello to the stewards and knowing I’ll get well supported here helps. I’ve got memories of good performances for Nottinghamshire and England.”
“It’s very hard to be too relaxed in a Test match. There’s the TV cameras and the massive crowd watching you,” he said.
“I don’t look at personal milestones. They don’t really drive me on. It’s more about the moments, like we had at Lord’s on Sunday after the second Test. Four or five hours passed away just chatting and listening to music,” he added.
