Update

Broken-nosed England bowler Stuart Broad has posted another photo of the damage done when he wore the brunt of a bouncer in the fourth Test against India at Old Trafford on Sunday

Broad, who has been named to play in the fifth and final Test of the series, posted the photo on his Facebook page saying; "Jackson thinks there's a Panda in the house!".

The fast bowler will reportedly wear a protective mask in the fifth Test.

England currently lead the series 2-1 after winning the previous two Tests against India.

England have named an unchanged 13-man squad for next week's fifth and final Test against India at The Oval, with Stuart Broad ready to play in a face mask.

The paceman was hit on the nose by a while batting at Old Trafford on Saturday after a Varun Aaron bouncer found its way between the peak of his helmet and the grille.

Broad, named man-of-the-match for his first innings six for 25, played no further part in England's crushing innings and 54-run victory, watching from his hospital bed as India lost nine wickets after tea in being dismissed for 161 in their second innings.

The win, completed inside three days, left England 2-1 up in the five-Test series with one to play.

Broad posted a picture of himself with a bloodied but stitched up nose on Twitter on Sunday.

Although the England and Wales Cricket Board had confirmed Saturday he had suffered a fracture, they said their medical team anticipated Broad "will be available for the fifth Test."

It was a view endorsed by the 28-year-old Broad himself, who wrote Sunday: "Little bit sore this morning but not too bad! Doc did a great job with the stitches. On to The Oval! (With a mask)."

Broad had previously announced he will undergo surgery on a longstanding knee injury after the series.

England's decision to name an unchanged squad will leave fast bowler Steven Finn and all-rounder Ben Stokes, both of whom didn't play at Old Trafford, looking to force their way back into the team at The Oval, where the fifth Test starts on Friday.

England squad: Alastair Cook (Essex, capt), Sam Robson (Middlesex), Gary Ballance (Yorkshire), Ian Bell (Warwickshire), Joe Root (Yorkshire), Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), Jos Buttler (Lancashire, wkt), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire), Chris Jordan (Sussex), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), James Anderson (Lancashire), Steven Finn (Middlesex), Ben Stokes (Durham)
