Stuart Broad will be out of action until the end of October after tearing a muscle within his right shoulder against India

England bowler Stuart Broad will miss the final ODI against India and the NatWest Twenty20 Series against West Indies as well as the ODI leg of the India tour with a muscle tear within his right shoulder.

Broad may be fit to join the England squad for the Twenty20 fixture scheduled for 29 October in Kolkata.

ECB chief medical officer Dr Nick Peirce said: "Stuart has a muscle tear within his shoulder and will require an initial period of rest and rehabilitation.

"Exact timescales will be determined in due course but he is likely to be ruled out of cricket for a number of weeks."
