Broad out of Nagpur Test; Finn doubtful

Zeenews Sports Bureau

Nagpur: England fast bowler Stuart Broad has been ruled out of the 4th and final Test between India and England due to a bruised heel.

Broad, who is England’s T20 skipper, has also become doubtful for the subsequent T20 matches between the two nations.

Board first had a scan on his injury during England`s second tour match in Mumbai last month, but he went on to play in the first two Tests before being dropped.

If Board fails to recover in time, England would also have to name a new captain for the slam-bang format. Eoin Morgan is most likely to replace him.

The two T20 matches are scheduled to take place in Pune and Mumbai on December 20 and 22, respectively.

According to the sources from the English camp, fast bowler Steve Finn, who replaced Broad in the Kolkata Test, is also a doubtful starter for the Nagpur Test.
