Knee problem sidelines Broad
Stuart Broad has been ruled out of England's remaining two NatWest Series one-day internationals against Australia, including today's match at Trent Bridge, due to a knee injury but is expected to play a full part in the forthcoming ICC Champions Trophy.
England chief medical officer Nick Peirce said: "Stuart has had a niggling injury to his right knee for some time which had been manageable and until recently had not led to him missing any cricket.
"This ongoing niggle, a tendinopathy, or inflammation to the tendon, has recently flared.
"This requires rest and as a result Stuart won't be available for England's final two matches of the NatWest Series.
"We expect Stuart to play a full part in the forthcoming ICC Champions Trophy after which time he will undertake a strengthening programme prior to England's tour of South Africa.
"Luke Wright continues to make good progress after splitting his left big toe last Monday and he'll be re-assessed at the conclusion of the NatWest Series."
England meet Australia in the seventh and final NatWest Series ODI at Chester-le-Street on Sunday. England's opening ICC Champions Trophy match is against Sri Lanka on Friday 25 September at The Wanderers.
