When watching Stuart Broad bowl in the 2009 ashes series at the time, and also looking back at highlights now it is evident to see he bowled consistently in the high 130's (km/h) up to the mid 140's.
While in other series and ashes series following this (limited role in 2010/11, 2013, and now this series) it is is clear to see he now averages around the low to mid 130's pace wise.
I am just interested in why his pace is down, and has anybody else noticed this?
Is it a deliberate conscious effort to sacrifice pace to focus on control? As the drop in pace does not seem to have affected his quality and potency (as evident in yesterdays performance).
The same could also be said for Anderson, looking back on highlights he was also into the 140's consistently, and the drop in pace has certainly not negated him as a threat.
