In 2003, Broad took on the role of ICC Test Official, serving as a match referee for both test matches and One Day Internationals. This included officiating the first match of the World Cricket Tsunami Appeal and acting as the match referee for the World Cup Super-Eight clash between West Indies and Australia.
He was also a match referee in Sri Lanka’s series against Pakistan and was in the convoy of vehicles attacked by terrorists in the 2009 attack on the Sri Lankan national cricket team. During the attack, he risked his life to protect the injured judge. He and referee Simon Taufel later criticized the level of protection provided to officials and players, saying at a news conference: “We were promised a high level of security and when we needed that security, it disappeared.” Six Pakistani policemen and two civilians were killed, and six Sri Lankan cricketers were injured in the attack.
