England included Broad in the playing XI for the ongoing second Test against the West Indies, after leaving him out for the series-opener. It was for the first time in eight years that Broad missed a Test at home.
On day two at Old Trafford, Broad bowled five overs and gave away 14 runs after England declared their first innings at 469/9.
“There is a spring in @StuartBroad8’s walk and I have a feeling that he is out on the field with plenty to show. #ENGvWI,” Tendulkar tweeted.
