Broad to sit out first two one-dayers

Stuart Broad has been rested for England’s opening two one-day internationals with Australia.

The fast bowler played in all five Ashes Tests and was England’s leading wicket-taker in the series with 21 scalps at an average of 27.52.

Broad will miss the ODIs in Melbourne on Sunday and at Brisbane next Friday, plus Tuesday’s game with a Prime Minister’s XI in Canberra.
