Stuart Broad: missed out on IPL stint

Sky Bet

England seamer Stuart Broad is likely to make his comeback from injury for Nottinghamshire in next week's LV= County Championship match against Lancashire at Old Trafford.

Broad injured his calf in the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle at the end of March and had to fly home before the series-levelling draw in Colombo.

He therefore also had to forego a prospective Indian Premier League campaign, and the England and Wales Cricket Board prescribed a rehabilitation programme.

Broad's progress is understood to have been encouraging - and with two championship fixtures for Nottinghamshire scheduled to take place in early May before the first Test against West Indies at Lord's, England are optimistic he will be ready.
