Brian Christopher Broad (born 29 September 1957) is a former English cricketer and broadcaster who currently serves as a cricket official.
As an opening batsman, he played 26 Test matches for England and scored six centuries, together with 34 One Day International matches with a respectable over 40 average. He is known largely for his feats during the 1986/87 Ashes series where he hit three centuries in consecutive Tests, and for his fiery demeanour at the crease.
Broad's children are both involved in cricket. His son Stuart is a fast bowler who, like his father, represents both England and Nottinghamshire, while his daughter Gemma worked as a performance analyst with England's One-Day squad.
