Video - Broad Wants Winning End To Tour

England Twenty20 International captain Stuart Broad says he and his team are hungry to end a disappointing tour of Australia on a winning note.

Broad, part of the England team that lost the Ashes Test series 5-0 and the One-Day International series 4-1, leads the side in three matches, the first of which is in Hobart tomorrow (29th January).

He says that for the players who have been involved in all three formats of the game, it has been a tough tour, but there is a resolve to end it with a series win.

"There's a real hunger in this group to finish this tour well," Broad said.

"Obviously Australia have had the better of us for three months and for the three guys who have been involved, well the four guys who've been involved in all three squads it's been a really tough time for us and we've got an opportunity in a strong team to really leave this tour with a bit of happiness and that's what we want to do."

The side will be boosted by Michael Lumb and Luke Wright who have both been in good form during the KFC Twenty20 Big Bash.

And Broad says he hopes their confidence and form can rub off on the rest of the group.

"It's certainly been good fun for me watching our English perform well in the Big Bash and bringing that confidence into this group is really exciting.

"We're desperate to win there's no doubt about that but we've been desperate to win every other game and we haven't so it's about applying our skills and being brave and I think we've got a group of players that certainly do that."
