Broad fitness to be monitored ahead of third Test


England paceman Stuart Broad will be assessed after the second Test against India but is able to continue bowling in Visakhapatnam despite a foot injury.

Broad underwent a scan on Friday after he was troubled by his right foot during the first two days of the Test this week.

The England and Wales Cricket Board revealed following the close of play on day three that the 30-year-old has a strained tendon and joint, so it remains to be seen if he will be fit for the third Test.

Broad, playing his 101st Test, did not appear to be hampered by the injury as he took 2-6 before Virat Kohli led India to 98-3 at stumps - leading by 298 runs and seemingly on course for a comfortable victory which would give them a 1-0 series lead.

Ravichandran Ashwin earlier claimed figures of 5-67 to bowl England out for 255 in reply to 455 after Ben Stokes (70) and Jonny Bairstow (53) put on 110 for the sixth wicket.
