A Twenty20 World Cup is incomplete without something eventful happening with Stuart Broad.

In South Africa 2007, he got his name etched in history for being at the receiving end of the famous Yuvraj Singh onslaught where he was hit for 6 sixes in an over. In the process, he also became the first pacer in history to hold this dubious record in any form of the game.

Then in England 2009, some may recall that he bowled the last over of the opening match of the tournament against the Netherlands. The Dutch had required 7 to win and Broad went on to bowl an over where he missed 1 catch and 3 pretty straight forward run out chances (4 chances in 1 over, what the hell!) to allow them the 7 runs and a famous win.

He wore a similar look on his face at the end of both those overs... two unforgettable overs for those who watched them live. Unfortunately, I missed both those overs and had to watch them in the highlights package. Maybe, I shouldn't watch an England match for him to entertain us once again.

Or maybe, he is saving it for the final. A grand final against the bitter rivals from Down Under - Australia!
