Injured Broad keeping fingers crossed over his 'money-spinning' IPL future

April 9, 2012 - London

England fast bowler Stuart Broad, who flew back home from their tour of Sri Lanka with a calf injury, has his fingers crossed over whether he will be fit enough to play in the lucrative Indian Premier League (IPL) this season.

Broad will come to know this week whether he could join his IPL team Kings XI Punjab for just four weeks of work, and which would earn him 140,000 pounds.

England head coach Andy Flower has revealed that it isn't decided yet whether Broad will play in the IPL or not, and it solely depends on his fitness.

"It's not definite that he will miss the IPL. Nick Peirce, our chief medical officer will be seeing Stuart on Monday, and we will have a clearer picture of his progress," The Sun quoted Flower, as saying

"Stuart is contracted to his IPL side so, if he's fit, he will go and return for one first-class game prior to the West Indies series," he added.
