Stuart Broad to have scan on ankle injury

England paceman Stuart Broad will undergo a scan on an ankle injury he exacerbated while playing for Nottinghamshire in the Specsavers County Championship.

Broad did not return to the field for the final two sessions as Worcestershire salvaged a Division One draw at Trent Bridge on Thursday.

The complaint will be assessed on Friday but, with a five-match Test series against India a little over a month away, Nottinghamshire head coach Peter Moores believes the problem is "manageable".

"Stuart's sore ankle has been ongoing and it was stirred up a little bit when he landed in the footholds, so it made sense for him to come off the field when it was too sore for him to bowl," Moores told the club's official website.

"It is manageable, but he has a lot of cricket to play in the rest of the summer. He will have a scan on it this morning.

"It was disappointing for him because he was desperate to get out there and was prowling around the dressing room, but injuries are injuries and you have to take heed of them."
