England seamer Stuart Broad has been ruled out for the remainder of the Test series against India, the England and Wales Cricket Board has announced.
Broad has suffered a calf injury during a warm-up second on Tuesday and will take no further part in the series, of which the second Test starts on Thursday.
Saqib Mahmood of Lancashire has been called up as a replacement.
An ECB statement read: “Stuart Broad has sustained a tear to his right calf and has been ruled out of the LV= Insurance Test series against India.
“He underwent an MRI scan in London on Wednesday lunchtime, which revealed a tear. Broad sustained the injury during the warm-up on Tuesday afternoon at Lord’s.”
The injuries count could rise for England as James Anderson sat out Wednesday’s training session with a thigh complaint.
England could face a Test match without both Broad and Anderson for the first since in almost five years.
