Broad given day-off after showing disappointment for being dropped
Despite picking up a hattrick against Windies in the warm-up match, Broad has shockingly lost his place to Sam Curran and Adil Rashid in the playing XI for the first Test.
The fast bowler is utterly disappointed and rather being with the team as the 12th man, Broad has been given a day-off to relax his mind. However, he is set to report back on Friday.
England have always stuck to this system and it is not the first time that a player has been given day-off after being dropped. The management believes that it helps a player to refresh his mind and come back forgetting all the disappointment.
Meanwhile, Broad has been involved in another story in the ongoing Test match. England are set to consider a legal action after the fast bowler suffered from bed bug bites in the hotel where both the teams are staying.
However, the hotel management was deeply shocked by the complaint and they believe that Broad might have left his hotel room window open and been bitten by either sand flies or mosquitoes.
