Broad, who played in the first Test ever drawn on Trent Bridge in Trent Bridge, received a tear-jerking scan.
England fast bowler Stuart Broad will miss the remaining Test matches against India with a torn calf, England and the Wales Cricket Board said on Wednesday.
Broad, who played in the first Test ever drawn on Trent Bridge in Trent Bridge, received a tear-jerking scared.
He suffered a hamstring injury Tuesday before training at Lord’s, where the second game of the series kicks off on Thursday, ahead of what would be his 150th Test.
Broad 52’s wickets make him the most successful Test bowler in England after longtime new football partner James Anderson, who is also battling for a second Test following a thigh injury.
“England tailor Stuart Broad cried in tears on his right jaw and was knocked out of the Test series against India,” the ECB said in a statement.
Earlier on Wednesday, the ECB announced that Saqib Mahmood, who had not studied at Test level but had played seven countries in one day and twenty-nine, had been called up to defend the Broad.
Mahmood is now joining Ollie Robinson, Mark Wood, Craig Overton and Sam Curran who are all aligned in the fight for a place in England’s speed attack.
