'First session of any series is vital', says Stuart Broad

By Super Admin

London, July 5(ANI): England fast bowler Stuart Broad has urged upon the importance of getting stuck into the Aussies and putting pressure on them from the first ball of the Ashes series in Cardiff to have a vital impact.

Broad highlighted the example of Steve Harmisson, who got stuck into the Aussies from the first ball of the 2005 series, following which England won the series 2-1, the News of the World reports.

While, Harmison proved to be ineffective for most part of the first session in Australia in 2007, setting the tone for a humiliating 5-0 whitewash."The first session of any series is absolutely vital. It is a case of getting the first punch in, so to speak, and then go on from there. We do know how vital momentum is in a Test match series," said Broad.

All-rounder Broad also signified the need to put constant pressure on the Aussies, the same way as Harmison did at Lord's in 2005, when he bowled a brutal opening spell striking Justin Langer and Aussie skipper Ricky Ponting. (ANI)
