"It has been a pretty sore Test match, in my second over I dived for the ball and my toe sort of slipped the wrong way and I have done damage to the tendon which is a bit awkward. But if that happens in the second over you have no option but to keep playing," he said about his injury.

Despite the strain that he suffered yesterday (Saturday), Broad returned impressive figures of 4/33 on the fourth and penultimate day of the second Test at Visakhapatnam.

"So physically it has been quite a tough Test match but it's all part of the job that you have to crack on a little bit. I think there are plans to move on once this Test match is finished to try and offload the tendon little bit for a few days. I am a believer that everyone reacts like different to injury and I have got to see how your body pulls off.

"You have got 17 days to Mumbai which is quite a long time, slightly less for Mohali, try get fit for the next one but definitely be fit for Mumbai," he said.
