Stuart Broad was awarded CBE in New Year’s honors after his impressive contribution to the national side of the sport.

CBE stands for ‘Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire’. It is the highest-ranking out of the British Empire Awards. The player has retired from Test Cricket after the Ashes 2023 series. Broad has played 167 Tests for England and finished with 604 wickets.

He was the second-most leading wicket-taker for England after James Anderson. Broad took more than 800 international wickets in his international career for England.

“All I ever wanted to do was play cricket, and to have had the career that I was able to enjoy and to receive honors like this is incredibly special,” Broad said, as quoted by England and Wales Cricket Board.

“I’m very proud that my contributions to cricket have been recognized, and it means a lot to me and my family,” Broad added.

On the other hand, Marcus Trescothick England men’s batting coach received OBE in the honours lists.

Trescothick has scored more than 10,000 runs for England but has been honored for his service to the nation and being an ambassador for mental health.

“It’s a huge honor to have been awarded an OBE,” he said. “I was delighted in 2005 when we were recognized as a team with MBEs but this is very special.”

“I’ve always wanted to let people know my story and to try and raise awareness to help anyone who may be struggling with poor mental health alongside the Professional Cricketers’ Association, so recognition of that work means a lot.”

Richard Thompson, England Cricket Board Chairman said, “As a whole game we’re absolutely delighted to see Stuart and Marcus honoured in this way.

“They have been fantastic ambassadors for cricket for many years, and they have played a major role in helping build the profile of our game and in turn bringing more people into our sport.

“Stuart has long been an inspirational figure and will be remembered as a true great of English cricket, and the spectacular nature of his retirement this summer was the perfect farewell.

“It’s also so fitting that Marcus has now been recognised both for his achievements on the field and for his bravery in talking so honestly about his own mental health challenges which has helped so many people.

“I would also like to pay tribute to all those hard-working people who have been honoured for their work in cricket. I am delighted to be able to share with them my warmest congratulations, on behalf of everyone in our game,” concluded Richard Thompson.
