Stuart Broad: England Bowler May be Ruled Out For Second Test

For the impending second Indian Test, Stuart Broad surfaced as an injury doubt.

On Tuesday he also skipped his network sessions since he felt uncomfortable in his calf. The medical staff will evaluate him and make the ultimate decision about his test availability.

If Stuart Broad plays the second test, it should be noted that it will be his 150th test.

Broad did not perform well since, during the first round, the first test ended in a draw due to rain, he couldn’t take a wicket. But the fourth night after he took one wicket, he seemed in good form.

If it is to be eliminated because of fitness problems, England will have a second strategy for Mark Wood.

Wood may have arrived in a Nottingham side which had no option of 90mph.

After Ben Stokes withdrew to give priority to his mental health, Craig Overton of Somerset was recruited to the 18-man test team.

An update from the Cricket Board read: “In today’s warm-up in Lord’s, England’s seamstress Stuart Broad was tweaking his right calf.

“He could not train with the rest of the British team this afternoon. Broad will scan the extent of his injuries tomorrow.”
