Broad says 'consistency' in selection crucial to win 2014 ICC World T20

Johannesburg, Sept 2 (ANI): England T20 captain Stuart Broad has said that consistency of selection would be the most important part in England's bid to regain the World Twenty20 title in Bangladesh next year.

According to Sport24, England got off to a bad start in their Twenty20 series against Australia, losing the first match by 39 runs at Southampton on Thursday as Aaron Finch smashed their attack for a Twenty20 international record 156.

However, the selectors named an unchanged side for Saturday's finale in Durham and were rewarded for their show of nerve with a 27-run win that saw England level the two-match series at 1-1, the report said.

England only have seven more matches before next year's World Twenty20 and Broad, speaking after Saturday's success, said stability in selection could only bolster the team's prospects, the report added.

The captain said that in the 1990s, England chopped and changed and therefore had some problems. (ANI)
