Broad and Sidebottom finish off NZ
England completed their 2-1 Test series win of New Zealand last night and Nottinghamshire’s Ryan Sidebottom and Stuart Broad were both in the limelight.
Sidebottom was named as man of the series for his 24 wickets in the three Tests, which included a hat-trick and 10 wickets in the first Test and career-best figures of 7-47 in the decider.
Broad produced vital runs and wickets in the third Test and appears to be converting his immense promise into performances while still only 21.
A long international career appears in front of him and the only concern for Notts fans - and Director of Cricket Mick Newell - will be how much county cricket he plays at Trent Bridge this season.
BBC Cricket Correspondent Jonathan Agnew highlights his potential here, while both players received top mark on Cricinfo, whose UK editor Andrew Miller applauds them both here.
