Biff fires broadside at Broad

Cape Town - Graeme Smith has questioned England captain Stuart Broad, suggesting the bowler valued his personal stats above the interests of the team.

Broad will look forward to the future after a miserable winter ended with an 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, ending their semi-final hopes after two defeats in three matches.

That ended a frustrating last few months for England who lost the coveted Ashes in Australia, a whitewash which turned acrimonious with the axing of key batsman Kevin Pietersen.

But Smith poured fresh scorn on the English Twenty20 bowler when he questioned the 27-year-old's captaincy credentials on Twitter following the Proteas' victory over England, writing: "Could be mistaken but never saw broad bowl in power play or death overs!protecting himself?"
