Former England cricketer Stuart Broad recently voiced his opinion about Indian batters after they failed to perform in the fourth Test match against India. Notably, England, who are currently trailing by 2-1 ahead of the fourth match of the Test series, posted 353 runs before getting all out in the first inning of the fourth Test game in Ranchi. However, the hosts were bundled out for 307 runs in the first inning.

However, English star cricketer Stuart Broad suggested to the Indian Cricket Board that they should bring star batter Cheteshwar Pujara, especially in the absence of star batters like Virat Kohli in the Test series. Notably, Cheteshwar Pujara has been out of the national squad since India's crushing defeat in the 2023 WTC Final against Australia at the Oval in London. The great pacer feels that Pujara can be brought into the team as he can provide stability and support.

"With the experience & world-class talent of Kohli missing, would there have been a temptation to bring back Pujara into this India batting lineup? Or is his international career over? Feels like he could have brought some consistency and an anchor," Stuart Broad shared on X, highlighting Pujara's potential role as a stabilizing force in the team.

Stuart Broad also talks about pitch conditions in host countries like India. In addition, the 37-year-old cricketer feels Team India plays well, especially on flat wickets, but he also wonders why they have prepared such a kind of wicket.

"I mainly tweet about England- but looking at India. They're an amazing team on flat Test pitches in India where their spinner's skill comes into it & they outbowl other teams. Playing on pitches that roll along the floor brings in the opposition so much more. I can't understand why they've prepared a pitch like this?" he added further.
