'Excited' Broad expecting 'lively reception' from Oz fans in winter Ashes tour

London, Oct 26 (ANI): England bowler Stuart Broad has said he believes that he will get a 'lively reception' from the Australian fans, although he added that he is excited and not intimidated by the fact.

Branded the 'Urinators' by Australian media following their Oval celebrations, England has already started to get the microscope focused on them as they were besieged by media persons while landing in Australia for their Ashes tour.

According to the Mirror, Australian head coach Darren Lehmann has implored the Australian fans to 'get stuck into Broad', although Broad said that he is expecting and even excited to face a 'lively reception' from the country's fans.

Broad further said that Australia is an 'awesome' country to tour for which he is excited given that it is his fifth trip to the land of his rivals, adding that his team needs to prepare well and see where they go in the series instead of looking too far ahead. (ANI)
