Stuart Broad faces chronic knee problem, may rest in 4th Test
London: England fast bowler Stuart Broad might have to rest for the fourth Test against India because of his chronic knee problem.
Broad was diagnosed with tendonitis in his right knee and it is believed that he required hot baths in the middle of the night just to help him sleep as the pain has been intense, the Mirror reported.
Broad has had to miss one-day matches against Sri Lanka and West Indies due to the problem and the England management know he must be handled carefully.
He battled through the pain barrier to play a leading role in England`s thumping third Test victory at Southampton this week, which leveled the five-Test series 1-1, report said.
After his fellow opening bowler Jimmy Anderson escaped a ban on Friday, cleared of shoving India`s Ravindra Jadeja during the first Test at Trent Bridge, England are giving serious consideration to omitting Broad.
