Broad: IPL decision was the right one

Stuart Broad's decision to turn down the riches of the Indian Premier League were vindicated with Ashes glory.

England all-rounder Broad has been tipped to rake in £2million in commercial deals on the back of his performances in the npower series victory over Australia. The spin-offs of the 2-1 success appear deserved, however, after Broad showed his commitment to preparing for an Ashes summer by taking three weeks off rather than put himself forward for the IPL auction.

"The reason I didn't go was to focus on the Ashes and that really worked out for me," said Broad, who set up England's fifth Test win with a five-wicket haul at The Oval.

"I managed to play in all five Tests and make useful contributions to us winning, so that decision was certainly worthwhile.

"The IPL will sometime in my career help me develop as a Twenty20 cricketer, it's a great competition and a great spectacle.

"But it all depends on how I and my body are feeling, and if anyone wants me.

"To be honest I haven't looked any further than packing my bags for Belfast (ahead of Thursday's one-day international against Ireland), so I don't know what will happen in the next year."
