Speaking to BBC Leicester, Broad lambasted Shine after suggestions were made to Stuart Broad that he should make some changes to his action.
The aim was to try to lessen the chances of injury, but Broad senior was unimpressed. "I don't believe you should have a whole host of clones playing in an England side so that they don't get injured.
"I can understand where Kevin Shine is coming from in that biomechanics are saying as far as injuries go you have to open up a little bit more save your back," he continued. "But Stuart's is a very natural action, it's a very easy action and it's a wicket-taking action. Injury is part and parcel of any game. A coach should work with the talent they have got in front of them, not change them into something that we see in a coaching manual.
"I hope Stuart sticks to his guns and I hope the England set-up realise the talent they have and work with it."
