Video - We've Been Told To Express Ourselves - Broad

Watch as Stuart Broad, talking at the close of play on day three of the third Test against India in Southampton, reveals that England coach Peter Moores asked his players to express themselves during this match.

Please note this video will only be available until 11th July, when the player above will display the latest available content.

Broad and team-mate James Anderson shared three wickets and Moeen Ali took two to reduce India to 323 for eight on day three.

That came after centuries from Gary Ballance (156) and Ian Bell (167) as well as a near-miss from Alastair Cook (95) helped England post 569 for seven declared.

And Broad revealed that after a 95-run defeat at Lord's, head coach Peter Moores asked the team to go out and enjoy themselves.

"Before this Test match, (Peter) Moores came to a few of us and said 'just go and express yourself. Don't worry about having to take the responsibility, having to do this sort of stuff, just go and play, like it's your first Test match,'" Broad said.

"I think that's shone through a little bit. Obviously, Cook and Bell played fantastically with the bat and Jimmy (Anderson) and I have contributed with the ball.

"We're in a great position in this Test match.

"Hopefully the wicket, late day four, day five will deteriorate a little bit and then I think it will be about your perfect Test match wicket. A couple of early ones tomorrow and we'll be in a good position," he added.
