Broad knows that he has to improve his on field behavior

Posted By: Staff

Cape Town (S. Africa), Jan.1 (ANI): England all-rounder Stuard Broad has proved he can win Test matches, and also knows that he has to be better behaved on the field.

Broad says he is so passionate about succeeding for England., that at times, his behavior is questionable

The paceman knows he will probably be fined at some point, but has no intention of whacking his stumps with his bat like his father Chris once did in a Test in Sydney.

The Sun quoted Broad, as saying: "I have a passionate outlook and sometimes it does get the better of me. At Centurion, a lot was made of what happened but it was a very relaxed conversation. We were told a few seconds were allowed for referrals so I thought 35 seconds was a long time.

"I was double checking how the umpires were sure there wasn't a signal from the South African dressing-room. It was all very relaxed, there were no raised voices, no swear words or anything like that," he added.

Broad said: "But it's crucial I carry myself in the right way. My youthful exuberance can get the better of me although, hopefully, not to the extent of hitting my stumps down or anything like that!" (ANI)
