Stuart Broad to retire from cricket at end of Oval Test

ICC says Al Jazeera's allegations 'implausible', concludes investigation
Stuart Broad has announced that the ongoing fifth Test of the Ashes series will be the last match of his professional career.

Broad made his decision “at about 8.30pm” on Friday evening, and informed his long-standing team-mates James Anderson and Joe Root of his decision before play on Saturday morning, and was understood to be fighting back tears in the process.

“It’s been a wonderful ride, a huge privilege to wear the Nottinghamshire and the England badge as much as I have,” Broad told Sky Sports at the close of the third day’s play. “And, I’m loving cricket as much as I ever have. It’s been such a wonderful series to be a part of, and I’ve always wanted to finish at the top. And this series just feels like it’s been one of the most enjoyable and entertaining I’ve been a part of
