Give Broad a chance

Great to see Stuart Broad bowl so well on Sunday but I hope he doesn't get over-hyped. Various papers seemed to suggest that his bowling was heroic, but I hope he isn't given the standard "the next Botham" treatment that seems to adversely affect every likely candidate. Hopefully his batting isn't good enough for him to get the new Botham tag, but he could well come good and fill the troublesome number 8 spot in the batting order.

Figures of 9-0-20-3 should of course be applauded but let's see how he does for the whole summer before we start heralding a new dawn...
