McCullum on the pairing of Pace duos

While taking to MucCullum if people can see the magic of the pair, he replied

“They’ll be here, They’re both smiling. How good’s that? Those guys are phenomenal cricketers. They could finish any time they wanted and they’d still be considered greats of the game. What they’re doing is continuing to build on the legacy they’re going to leave for the next generation – the time they’re giving other people in the dressing-room is phenomenal. Stuff you don’t see behind the scenes. The time, the effort, and the confidence they’re giving the other guys are quite remarkable, really. I’ve really enjoyed working alongside those two guys as well, trying to ensure that every day they’re enjoying themselves. The skipper’s good at that as well. [It was a] remarkable performance from both of them, and Jimmy has obviously been phenomenal all season, and the way Broady has stepped into that first-change role and embraced it and performed the way he has is also a mark of the person he is, and long may that continue.”
