Nottinghamshire bowler Stuart Broad has been training with his England colleagues with a splint on his broken nose ahead of the fifth Test against India at the Oval.

The 28-year-old suffered the injury after top-edging a Varun Aaron bouncer during England's victory at Old Trafford last week. He has said he may need to play in a protective face mask.

Broad missed practice yesterday but returned today. He appeared to be bowling at full pace without any discomfort.
