The Stuart Broad England star has been ruled out for the entire series. Stuart Broad suffered an injury to his right leg during practice and was later found injured after undergoing an MRI scan in London on Wednesday.
The five-match Test series between India and England is going on. The first match between the two ended in a draw. And now these two teams will once again face to face in the Lord’s Test starting on August 12. Whereas before this both the teams have suffered a big setback.
Indian all-rounder Shardul Thakur was ruled out of the second Test due to injury, while England star Broad has been ruled out of the entire series. Stuart Broad suffered an injury to his right leg during practice, which led to an MRI scan in London on Wednesday and a test later found him injured.
Lancashire fast bowler Saqib Mahmood has been included in the cover team after Stuart Broad was injured. Shakib has played 16 international matches for the English team which includes 7 ODIs and 9 T20 Internationals.
If Stuart is out of the team due to injury in the second Test, then Mark Wood can also be included in the English team in his place. According to media reports, Broad is having trouble keeping his right leg. In such a situation, it is expected that he can be out of the series.
The ECB selectors may give Mark Wood the last chance in place of Broad. As far as Mark Wood is concerned, he has played 20 Test matches for England in which he has also taken 59 wickets.
England’s very fast bowler Shakib Mahmood has been included in the English team as cover for Stuart Broad. Rather, Dome Base has been dropped from the team. It will be interesting to see here whether Shakib gets a chance to make his Test debut against India.
