Broad return boosts England

January 31, 2013 10:50:48 UK

Stuart Broad has handed England a boost after coming through his first outdoor bowling session with no ill-effects.

The Twenty20 captain was forced to leave the tour of India with a bruised heel but got through five overs unscathed on Thursday, and Ashley Giles is pleased to have him available for the upcoming clashes with New Zealand.

We've got a lot of strength in depth.

"He's got a major part to play in three forms of the game," said England's limited-overs coach after watching Broad bowl.

Broad's place had seemed under threat after he failed to take a wicket during the Test series against India. He didn't feature in the Twenty20 games or the one-day series and will be targeting a return to form against New Zealand.

England are 1.20 to win the Twenty20 series, while New Zealand can be backed at 4.50.
 
Graeme Swann will miss the Twenty20 matches against the Black Caps, while Kevin Pietersen will also be rested for the one-day internationals, but Giles believes the players that are travelling will do well.

"This is a good position to be in," he said.

"We've got a lot of strength in depth.

"We showed that by taking a relatively inexperienced bowling attack to India for the one-dayers, and leaving some really good players behind.

"That's a key for us. We need to look after our good players really well, keep them hungry and on top of their game."

England's first Twenty20 warm-up fixture will take place in Whangarei on Monday.
