Stuart Broad sets September 4 date for knee surgery

London: England pace bowler Stuart Broad will have surgery on his right knee on Sept. 4, the England and Wales Cricket Board announced on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old will miss the five one-day internationals against India starting on Monday, but is expected to be fit in time for the World Cup, which begins in February.

"I've been due for a while so can't wait to get sorted," Broad, who took 19 wickets in the recent test series against India and broke his nose in the fourth match, said on Twitter on Wednesday.
