London: Stuart Broad has revealed there is "bad news" about the extent of the injury he picked up in against India, at Lord's, on Sunday although exact details were still to be confirmed. "Bad news on the shoulder, torn a muscle," Broad posted on Twitter, while the ECB confirmed that a full statement would be released in due course.
Broad was unable to complete his final over during the one-day international and it appears likely England will need to find a new captain for the Twenty20 matches against West Indies. Broad was dosed up on painkillers and ready to bat at No.11 if needed during England's chase which was ended seven balls early by rain.
With Morgan, England's Twenty20 vice-captain, sidelined due to a shoulder injury there is no obvious replacement for Broad as captain. One option would be to give the job to the 50-over captain, Alastair Cook, but he refused to think too far ahead, saying, "We'll cross all those bridges when they arrive."
