India vs England, 2nd Test: Stuart Broad set to miss Mohali Test with foot injury
Despite the strain that he suffered on Saturday, Broad returned impressive figures of 4/33 on the fourth and penultimate day of the second Test at Visakhapatnam.
Visakhapatnam: England pacer Stuart Broad on Sunday said he needs time to recover from his damaged tendon on the right foot, indicating that he is all set to miss the third Test against India in Mohali starting on 26 November.
"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.

India vs England, T20 World Cup warm-up match, Live Updates: Chris Jordan to bowl. too straight from Jordan, and it's in the perfect slot for Hardik, who drills it between mid-off and extra cover for four! Great start to the over for India. Good ball, almost wide but not quite and it's a dot. Low full toss into Pandya's knees. He could have taken the single, but he chooses to stay on strike. Oh, very poor delivery from Jordan. That was wide and high, and it also ran away for four without making any contact with Pandya's bat. Free hit signalled. Pandya gets a huge edge on it, and that's four! It flies over short third man! Another low full toss, and the India duo run a double. Oh my word, a no ball now, and Pandya takes a single. Terrible over this from Jordan. Pant to face a free hit now. India just need 3 from 7 balls. Pant could end it now. It's a six and India win by seven wickets!!
