Broad happy with response
England's Stuart Broad admits it was nice to silence his critics as he shined with the ball in the fourth Ashes Test.
Broad picked up a four-wicket haul for the first time in 12 months as he upped his game on day two in Melbourne.
The Nottinghamshire star failed to take a scallp in the third Test as England relinquished the Ashes and some sections of the media questioned his place in the team.
He responded with figures of 4-51 on day two, while England's Alastair Cook finished the day on 104 not out.
When asked about his form, Broad admitted he took himself away from the spotlight and just continued to work on his game.
He told Sky Sports: "I think you can get yourself in a bit of dark place if you read everything. I've had one of those weeks where you get your tin hat on, duck down and don't really see much.
"I've been unaware about things being written and said but you've got to be critical at times and I deserved criticism after Perth - I was poor.
"I've gone to the place that you have to go to as a sportsman where you find something within yourself, get support from people around you and build yourself back up again."
