Broad back in nets

Afp, London

England paceman Stuart Broad took part in a net session on Thursday, on the eve of the fifth Test against India, while wearing a splint to protect his broken nose.
The fast-medium bowler missed England's training session at The Oval on Wednesday but was back in action on Thursday.
Broad has his nose broken while batting at Old Trafford by a Varun Aaron bouncer which he deflected between the peak of his helmet and the grille.
He batted in The Oval nets wearing a different helmet, facing spin and short-pitched throw downs from England batting coach Mark Ramprakash and later bowled at close to full pace.
