Stuart Broad has vowed to make his fire-ravaged pub a special place again.

The England paceman was woken early on the second morning of the second Test against New Zealand at Trent Bridge by his co-owner and former team-mate Harry Gurney, with the news that the Tap & Run — a dozen miles away in Upper Broughton — was ablaze and being tackled by eight fire crews. The fire has been confirmed to be accidental.

The 35-year-old attended the site after the match to assess things. He said: ‘Parts of the roof had fallen into the bottom floor, all the windows were blown out and it showed what scary damage a fire can cause.

‘I’ve always had the ability to focus on what’s in front of me and I knew during the Test match I couldn’t control anything other than getting in touch with the staff and checking everyone was okay,’ he added.

‘I feel for the villagers, because they really embraced us. But if things go to plan, we will make it special again.’

Elsewhere, Broad was positive about Brendan McCullum’s style of cricket after England’s breath-taking win over New Zealand.  

‘We are going to risk defeat because, even if we had lost, it’s still more inspiring than blocking out for a draw or never having a scent of victory,’ Broad said.

‘We believe we will win more than we lose playing this style and that we can win games from any position. Only when you start doubting yourself do you tend to mess things up.
