Ashes: Stuart Broad insists England still believe they can do 'something special'

Stuart Broad: England still believe they can do 'something special' in the third Test

Stuart Broad: England still believe they can do 'something special' in the third Test

England fast bowler Stuart Broad retains the belief the team can still salvage something from the third Test despite a day to forget at the WACA against Australia.

The Baggy Greens are closing in on success in Perth after moving into a commanding 369-run lead, thanks in part to David Warner's 112-run contribution.

Broad's participation in the match was limited after he was forced from the field of play courtesy of a Mitchell Johnson yorker which caught him flush on the right foot - a delivery which also resulted in his dismissal for lbw.

The 27-year-old will not bowl again in the third Test, although he will go back out with the bat if needed.

Despite yet another disastrous day for England in the series Broad, who is now on crutches, says Andy Flower's men are not allowing the doom and gloom scenario to affect their belief.

Tough day

"Bit of a frustrating morning losing those wickets and then obviously Australia batted fantastically well, but we've still a lot of belief in the changing room that we can do something special in this game."

"We've obviously had a tough day," Broad told Sky Sports.

"Bit of a frustrating morning losing those wickets and then obviously Australia batted fantastically well, but we've still a lot of belief in the changing room that we can do something special in this game.

"There are still two days left in this game. This team has done some special things in the last three or four years and we need something special over the next two days.

"We give a lot of credit to the Australian bowlers. They are running hard at us and not letting us score easily. They have stuck to their plans and it is unlike England not to score a hundred.

"The guys are disappointed but we have to improve in the second innings here and for the rest of the series. There is a lot of belief that things will change for us."
