Premier English pacers Stuart Broad and James Anderson were engaged in a funny banter after the visitors eked out a draw in the fourth Test of Ashes 2021-22 at SCG. 

The fourth Test of the Ashes 2021-22 at SCG made almost everyone go bonkers. The Joe Root-led side displayed a superlative effort with the bat to script a thrilling draw. 

If it was top and middle order, who fought hard in the first two sessions of Day 5 of SCG Test, lower-order played its part too and denied Australia a win.

Jack Leach, Stuart Broad, and James Anderson showed great composure with the bat and salvaged a famous draw for their team. While Leach and Broad put the hard yards by playing 34 and 35 deliveries respectively, Anderson played out an entire over of Steve Smith to help his side draw the match. 

After the match ended in a draw, Stuart Broad took to his official Instagram account and posted two pictures, sharing his thoughts on the game.

In one picture he can be seen holding his head in relief while walking back to the pavilion with James Anderson. In the second picture, he can be seen surrounded by nine Australian fielders. 

"Test Cricket. Battle for 5 days & it comes down to the last ball. Loved playing at the S.C.G. Special place,” Stuart Broad captioned the pictures.

James Anderson reacted to Stuart Broad’s post and said: “Looks like you had a lot of faith in me (thumbs-up emoticon)."

Broad in response to Anderson wrote: “I was stressed.”
