Broad to miss three-match Test series against Pakistan
The English pacer took some time off from cricket and will be spending time with his family. The 36-year-old will be missing England’s tour of Pakistan, which is set to begin on December 1 at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.
Meanwhile, the Three Lions are scheduled to play a practice match against England Lions before the tour. Ben Stokes, the designated captain, of the side will not be participating and hence, Ollie Pope has been given the responsibility to lead the team.
The all-rounder is reportedly suffering with a knee injury after playing nine T20Is in a space of just a month. Stokes is currently not bowling in the practice sessions and thus, there are some concerns in the England dressing room. However, the management has decided not to rush and give Stokes proper rest at the moment.
The warm-up match at Tolerance Oval will show see the return of Jofra Archer in the England set-up. He is expected to bowl for the Lions but with heavy restrictions. The pacer didn’t feature in England colours for more than 18 months because of multiple injuries he suffered in the past couple of years. Like Stokes, the team management is not rushing with him and will give him proper time to recover.
