Fitness fears for Broad ahead of first Test against Lanka

Colombo, Tue, 20 Mar 2012 ANI

Colombo, Mar.20 (ANI): Fitness fears surround England fast bowler Stuart Broad ahead of the visitors first Test against Sri Lanka, which is to take place in less than a week.


The Sun quoted a team source, as saying that: "His ankle wasn't brilliant when he bowled. He still felt some discomfort. He'd have hoped for the ankle to be fine after five days but it was actually quite a severe twist."


Team management were due to make a decision on whether he plays in the final warm-up against a Sri Lankan Development XI early this morning.


Broad has had three serious injuries in 15 months - stomach muscle, shoulder and elbow.


This is unlikely to be a long-term problem but could mean he is short of full fitness on Monday for the first of two Tests.


Head coach Andy Flower said: "I don't think it's absolutely necessary for Stuart to play in the final warm-up match, but it's preferable if he is going to play in the Test." (ANI)
