India vs England: Stuart Broad doubtful for 3rd Test with foot injury

England fast bowler Stuart Broad is doubtful to feature in the third Test against India after a foot injury forced the team management to review his fitness.

Broad, who underwent a scan on his right foot after Friday's play in the ongoing second Test, has suffered damage to a tendon.

"Stuart Broad has strained a tendon and one of the small joints in his right forefoot. The injury will be reviewed further at the end of the Test," an England media statement said Saturday.

However Broad, who rattled the Indian top-order with his twin strikes in the final session on day three, will "continue to bowl" in the rest of the innings.

Broad, 30, also got Indian opener Lokesh Rahul for a duck in the second over of the match but struggled as the game progressed.

Broad's injury scare has added to the woes of a team already missing leading paceman Chris Woakes who is nursing a knee injury.

Woakes' replacement James Anderson has just returned to action after recovering from a shoulder injury.

England have Steven Finn and Jake Ball in the squad as pace backup for the marathon five-match series. The first Test at Rajkot ended in a draw.
