WATCH: Broad in Fletcher firing line at New Road

Stuart Broad was in the firing line in his first match of the English cricket season on Monday and it was the burly Luke Fletcher threatening to do damage to his Nottinghamshire team-mate.

England bowler Broad and fellow seamer Fletcher put on a brisk 35 for the eighth wicket in the morning session on the final day of their County Championship clash against Worcestershire.

Broad made a quickfire 38, but might have wished he had been dismissed sooner after he needed a check-over from the physio following a heavy collision with Fletcher when they set off for a single. 

Fletcher's clean-striking also put Broad in danger, the towering 31-year-old having to take evasive action on a couple of occasions when his partner smashed boundaries down the ground.

Nottinghamshire posted an Instagram clip of the mid-wicket collision captioned 'DON'T MESS WITH LUKE FLETCHER' after they won by an innings and 41 runs.


Tough Monday morning for me that.  @trentbridge
