Ind vs Eng: Big setback to England, Stuart Broad ruled out of entire Test series due to injury

Ind vs Eng: Broad sustained the injury during the warm-up on Tuesday afternoon at Lord’s. As per UK media reports, the 35-year-old was not able to place any weight on his right leg after the incident. He might have undergone a calf strain or Achilles tendon problem that could even rule him out of the ongoing five-match series. Broad was supposed to play his 150th Test at the Mecca of Cricket, but now his place in XI is in jeopardy. The pacer had taken a lone wicket against India in the opening Test. Stuart Broad’s injury could open a place for Mark Wood to enter the playing XI and join the likes of James Anderson, Sam Curran and Ollie Robinson. (India tour of England)
