According to Daily Star, Broad slipped during his run-up in his second over of the day and sat on the sidelines for over an hour receiving ice treatment.
Broad had reportedly suggested bowling around the wicket to in search of firmer footing but returned to his original angle after groundskeeper’s placed sawdust on the pitch.
However the 28-year-old’s boot slipped through the crease, leaving him writhing in agony as concerned teammates watched on.
So heavy was the concern that England coach Peter Moores entered the field of play alongside physio Craig de Weymarn, who attended to the injured Broad.
Broad returned to the field after receiving treatment, however, the game itself continued to be a non-contest.
Jonathan Trott, Jonny Bairstow and Gary Ballance were sent in to bat for the St Kitts XI as England negotiated a deal to spend 90 overs in he field on Wednesday.
Trott did not get the time at the crease both he and the England coaching staff wanted after he was dismissed for a duck by Jimmy Anderson.
