Ashes 2013-14: Stuart Broad escapes broken foot and will bat if needed in Third Test
Broad did not bowl after suffering the blow to his right foot by a Mitchell Johnson full toss delivery but x-rays have confirmed that he has not suffered a fracture
Monday 16 December 2013
Scans on Stuart Broad's foot injury have confirmed no fracture, the England and Wales Cricket Board has reported.
Broad is unable to bowl in Australia's second innings in the third Test, but will bat if necessary in Perth to try to help England keep the Ashes alive.
He had x-rays and then scans in hospital on Sunday, after being hit on the right boot by Mitchell Johnson while batting, but said at a subsequent press conference he is still hoping to play a part in the remainder of a series England already trail 2-0.
An ECB statement, via its official Twitter account, read: "Scans revealed no evidence of a fracture.
"He will continue to receive treatment on his right foot and will be reviewed on a regular basis ahead of the fourth Test.
"He will bat in this current Test if required."
