Chittagong: Stuart Broad looked forward to a new England era after a miserable winter ended with ICC World Twenty20 exit in Chittagong on Saturday. England went down by three runs in a pulsating Super-10 stage Group One match against South Africa, going out of the semi-final race after two defeats in three matches.
That ended a frustrating winter for England who lost the coveted Ashes in Australia, a whitewash which turned acrimonious with the axing of key batsman Kevin Pietersen. "It's going to be a new era of English cricket, isn't it? It has been a tough winter," admitted Broad. (Match report)
"We've been away a huge amount of time so there is some fantastic opportunities available for players in the summer."
