West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo is a jovial character on and off the cricket field. While he likes to have a bit of fun on the pitch, he is just the same off it, be it through his music videos or statements. And this time around it was England pacer Stuart Broad who was mercilessly trolled by the Caribbean on social media. While there is little doubt that England are a force to reckon with in white-ball cricket, Broad too suggested the same on broadcast.
After beating Pakistan 2-1 in the three-match series, when captain Eoin Morgan lifted the trophy, Broad harmlessly said, "Just watching Morgs lift the trophy there, I think we'll win the World Cup" on a sports broadcast network. However, Bravo pounced on to this opportunity to troll Broad. Reacting to post which mentioned the comment of the veteran pacer, who only features in Test matches for the Three Lions, Bravo wrote, "didn't know @stuartbroad turned comedian now. all the best to all teams tho let's wait and see!!"

ECB forced to field a new-look team in ODI series against Pakistan
Talking about the England-Pakistan series, the home team won the final T20I by 3 wickets to take the series 2-1. Earlier, a second-string English team led by Ben Stokes clean-swept Pakistan in the ODI series. While the England and Wales Cricket Board had earlier announced a different squad for the ODIs with Morgan at the helm, they were forced to field a new-look team after as many as three players and four support staff members from the camp which played against Sri Lanka tested Coronavirus positive.
Moreover, the Sri Lankan players and officials, who had come in close contact with English players and staff also faced the COVID-19 scare with at least two members in their team testing positive for COVID-19. This forced the Sri Lanka Cricket to reschedule the entire white-ball leg against India. The three-match ODI series between Sri Lanka and India currently stands 2-0 in favour of the Shikhar Dhawan-led side.
