Broad was forced to miss the thrilling World Cup tie with India after suffering his second stomach illness of the tour.

However Broad joined his team-mates for training at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Tuesday, taking a full part in fielding drills and also bowling in the nets.

Broad is now likely to reclaim his place from Ajmal Shahzad, who took 0-53 against India.

England team-mate Tim Bresnan said Broad had looked in good shape.

"He's a lot better today," said Bresnan. "I think he'll be keen to get out there and bowl some overs in the nets."
