Broad jibes Oz fans by saying England could have won Ashes 5-0

Johannesburg, Sept 20 (ANI): England fast bowler Stuart Broad has said that they could have won the Ashes series 5-0 instead of being contented with just a 3-0 win.

Broad's statement comes on the heels of Australian coach Darren Lehmann comments that Australia could have won atleast two Tests, after the third Test at Old Trafford fell victim to rain and the fifth Test at the Oval was ended by bad light with the match finely poised.

However, Sport24 reports that Broad dismissed Lehmann's comments, saying that series could just as easily have finished with an England whitewash, adding that the bottom line is that even though Australia had the chance to win Test matches in England, they failed to win even a single Test.

Broad further said that cricket is a results-driven business.

Broad is due to be the focus of attention when the return series begins in Australia in November, after his contentious decision not to walk during the first Test at Trent Bridge, the report added. (ANI)
