Stuart Broad dubs the Chittagong Test as one of top five he has played in

England pacer Stuart Broad has described the ongoing Chittagong Test as one of the most exciting Tests that he has ever played. 

With the hosts needing 33 more runs and England requiring two more wickets going into the final day, the umpires decided to call it stumps at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong due to bad light late on Sunday evening. The game could have continued had the visitors decided to go along with their spinners. However, England captain, Alastair Cook wanted to employ his pacers.

Speaking to reporters after the day's play, Broad said: “Well look, it’s a fantastic Test match to be part of. They [Bangladesh] need 33 runs. We need two wickets. The thing that you tell yourself as a bowling unit is that it’s just two good balls: Who can have the character, who can be the match winner to be able to bowl two unplayable deliveries or beat the batsmen’s defence or test the batsmen’s ego. 

“I think Bangladesh have played fantastically well. The Test match has been up there in probably top five for me to have played in exciting wise and look I have played 99 games and I know that I am going to be worried for two or three hours tonight,” Broad added.
