Stuart Broad and Luke Wright have both been able to practice with the England squad in New Zealand despite carrying injuries.

Stuart Broad and Luke Wright have both proved their fitness in practice ahead of England's first match on the tour of New Zealand.

Broad, who is the captain of the Twenty20 side, has been recovering from a bruised heel, but was able to bowl outdoor for the second time since arriving in New Zealand.

Wright sustained a hand injury during fielding drills yesterday, but was able to bat without discomfort in their practice session earlier today.

Both are expected to take part in the 20-over contest against a New Zealand XI tomorrow.
