Cape Town:

Stuart Broad has recovered from a shoulder injury and could play in England's third one-day international against South Africa on Friday.

The allrounder was hurt when he fell in England's opening warmup match on Nov. 6 and has not played since.

He practiced with the rest of the team on Wednesday and could replace pace bowler Sajid Mahmood, who has taken eight wickets in seven matches.

Fast bowler James Anderson should be available despite a knee problem so spinner Graeme Swann and opener Alastair Cook are players unavailable.

England leads the five-match series 1-0.
