Rob Key, the new managing director of the ECB, agreed to Stokes’ proposal. He has already informed Anderson-Broad that he will be considered for the series in the summer.
“I’ve already told them (Anderson and Broad) over the phone that they would be considered for the team in the summer,” Robbie said. They wanted to know if the captain’s thoughts were the same. I have informed the matter. ”
He added: “Stokes is the first to say that Jimmy (Anderson) and (Stuart) Broad are returning to the team. I agreed. There was no disagreement with anyone. Maybe there would have been a debate. ”
Meanwhile, after being dropped from the squad, James Anderson and Stuart Broad raised questions about the team selection process. They also said they did not understand why they were dropped.
