Broad and Anderson's service for the England cricket team has been more than they are given credit for.
The way they have held fast for such a prolonged period has inspired others which has helped t develop their game beyond what they may have hoped to. Of course this goes beyond the players with the amazing coaching teams behind them that Strauss set in place which has only progressed and set up a fantastic future for British and possibly world cricket.
We now have the best in world players in all disciplines of the field and all disciplines of the game. Such a shame we can;t get to the stands to watch it all live and give them the atmosphere and crowd adoration their performances deserve.
