Foot X-ray for injured Broad

Stuart Broad was sent for an X-ray on a foot injury after being unable to take to the field to bowl for England on day three of the third Test.

Broad was absent when England came out to bowl after lunch in Perth, having been dismissed for 251 in reply to Australia's 385.

Tim Bresnan therefore had to take the new ball with James Anderson, while Broad hobbled off initially to the WACA nets to see if he might be able to bowl after all.

A few minutes later, an England and Wales Cricket Board spokesman confirmed he had gone for an X-ray.
