'Broad could be the new Flintoff'

Complimenting Stuart Broad as England's most improved performer, Proteas batsman and now wicketkeeper AB de Villiers has said that the Nottinghamshire pacer can replace Andrew Flintoff to trouble the South African batsmen.
Ahead of a series billed as a battle of the bowlers, de Villiers admitted the batsmen could find life extremely tough.
He is delighted that he won't have to worry about the threat of Flintoff anymore after Freddie's heroics in 2008, but is wary that Broad can send the ball down at an equal pace and from the same height and will be just as much of a handful, the Daily Mirror reports.
"Flintoff is not there any more, thank goodness for that. He was one of the best bowlers I ever faced but Broady has improved a lot. And there's Jimmy Anderson and Tim Bresnan -- they are all good," said de Villiers.
