England pacer Stuart Broad is used to terrorising batsmen with his bouncers, but this time the 31-year-old has delivered a real googly to the denizens of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) by winning Gameweek 37 with a seriously impressive haul of 180 points.

Yes, you read that right and here’s proof if you don’t believe us:

Broad’s won the lot with England, from the Ashes to the T20 World Cup, but it seems he’ll have to make some room in his trophy cabinet for some hard-earned goodies:

The 6’5 Broad, who famously picked up 8-15 in an Ashes Test, clearly rates this achievement as one he’s likely to cherish for a fair bit:

Broad’s gamble to captain Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang paid off handsomely as the Gunners frontman netted three goals and an assist over two matches.

The 31-year-old recently reached the 400-wicket milestone in Test cricket and it was doubly special for the Nottingham-born pacer as he became the youngest pacer to reach the landmark.
