Planning key to series win: Broad
Tuesday 23 August 2011

England fast bowler Stuart Broad has credited the extensive pre-series planning for their 4-nil triumph over the much-vaunted Indian side.

England defeated India by an innings an eight runs in the fourth and final cricket Test at the Oval yesterday to complete a 4-0 whitewash of the visitors.

"We have worked well together. (Graeme) Swann has bowled very well on this wicket and we have all bowled to a plan throughout the series. It has been very rewarding," he was quoted as saying in the British media.

"They (India) have a powerful batting line-up but we set pretty clear plans at the start of the series on how we wanted to bowl - slightly fuller lengths with the odd bouncer and the wickets we have played on have allowed that.

"The plans have worked and we are delighted with the results," added Broad, who was adjudged England's player-of-the-series.
