Fast bowler Stuart Broad's participation in England's Twenty20 international against South Africa on November 13 is in doubt after the 23-year-old suffered an injury to his right shoulder.

The seamer jarred his bowling shoulder while fielding in England's warm-up match against the Eagles in Bloemfontein on Friday.

He was sent for a precautionary scan the day after the match, which revealed no major damage but England's management decided not to risk him in any of the remaining warm-up fixtures, against franchise side the Warriors on Sunday and a South Africa A side on Tuesday.

"Broad will continue to be assessed over the next 72 hours when we will be better placed to make a decision on his fitness," England media manger James Avery told Reuters on Sunday.

"We haven't set any time frame on his recovery period. We need to see how he responds to treatment."
