Stuart Broad to be rested ahead of Ashes series as England seamer struggles with heel injury

Wednesday, September 13, 201

Stuart Broad remains unlikely to play again before England embark for their Ashes itinerary next month.
England are still awaiting results of the latest scans on Broad’s sore heel, and the frontline seamer is not expected to rejoin Nottinghamshire for two remaining fixtures in their bid for promotion from Division Two of the Specsavers County Championship.
Broad, 31, was an ever-present for England through their successful summer but is not currently in their limited-overs squads – won the last of his 121 one-day international caps early last year.
He therefore has an opportunity to rest an injury, which is thought to to his problems with a split fat-pad in 2012/13, until England’s departure for Australia at the end of October.
