England pacer Stuart Broad believes he has the fitness as well as the hunger to play the game for as long as James Anderson, who turns 38 later this month.
A "hungry" Stuart Broad wants to emulate his pace colleague James Anderson in terms of career longevity, saying he is fit enough to play for some more years.
After being ignored for the first Test in Southampton, the 34-year-old pacer returned to the side for the ongoing second game against the West Indies and handed England advantage late in the fourth day with his three-wicket burst.
Anderson, who will turn 38 on 30 July, has been rested for the second Test at Old Trafford.
"Why not try to emulate what Jimmy has done, play until his age and have that sort of success? I'm hungry. My fitness record is good. If I have that as a goal, when I set goals in my mind it makes me very hungry to achieve them," Broad was quoted as saying by BBC Sport.
Broad is 99 wickets behind Anderson's 587 Test scalps.
He said, "Sometimes I get put into an older category than I am."
"Jimmy has taken those wickets since turning my age. Why can't I do the same?"
Dropped for the series-opener, Broad had minced no word in criticising the decision.
"It's great to be back in the side. That opportunity was always going to come, but you have the natural disappointment if you're not playing."
