England pace bowler Stuart Broad will undergo knee surgery on September 4 as he targets full fitness in time for the 2015 World Cup.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) had already confirmed that the 28-year-old needed to go under the knife to cure a long-standing tendonitis problem.

"The ECB medical team confirmed that England pace bowler Stuart Broad is to have surgery on his right knee on Thursday 4 September," said an ECB statement.

"A rehabilitation and recovery programme will be determined following the operation."

Broad helped England to a 3-1 Test series win over India despite having suffered a broken nose in the innings and 54-run fourth Test victory.
