CRICKET

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY APRIL 12 -

STU­ART BROAD’S In­dian Premier League de­but will be fur­ther de­layed af­ter the Eng­land Twenty20 cap­tain was ruled out of all cricket for three weeks.

Broad flew home early from Eng­land’s tour of Sri Lanka due to a calf strain he picked up in the first Test at Galle.

The Not­ting­hamshire pace­man’s re­cov­ery pe­riod will ex­tend un­til the end of the month.

The ECB an­nounced: “Broad will be as­sessed reg­u­larly with a view to re­turn­ing to cricket with Not­ting­hamshire in early May.”
