Stuart Broad out for the series while James Anderson is set to miss second Test

Stuart Broad out for the series while James Anderson is set to miss second Test

The pair have 1,145 test wickets between them for England

England are preparing to line up in a home Test without James Anderson or Stuart Broad for the first time in over nine years, after a damaging double injury blow at Lord’s.

Broad has been ruled out of the rest of the five-match LV= Insurance Series against India after pulling up injured in a warm-up session ahead of the second Test, which likely would have marked his 150th appearance in the format.

An MRI scan in London on Wednesday lunchtime has revealed a tear to Broad’s right calf – ending the 35-year-old Nottinghamshire seamer’s involvement in the rest of England’s summer schedule.

That setback was compounded when 39-year-old Anderson complained of a tight quad on the eve of the match and it is highly unlikely that any risks will be taken with his longer-term fitness.
