Stuart Broad has been made available to play in Nottinghamshire’s pink ball, floodlit Specsavers County Championship Division One match at home to Worcestershire, starting on Monday 25 June.
The 31-year-old has not played since helping England level their recent Test series with Pakistan at the start of this month.
But after being given a rest of three weeks, the ECB are happy for the right-arm seamer – who has 417 Test wickets to his name – to play against the Pears.
Nottinghamshire will be bidding to complete a double against the West Midlands club, having won at Blackfinch New Road by an innings in April.
“Having a Test bowler of Stuart’s class available to play for us is always a huge plus.”
“It’s always great to get Stuart back in any Notts team and it will be a huge boost to everyone involved,” said Head Coach Peter Moores
“His quality as a performer was seen again in the last Test against Pakistan and he will add that cutting edge to our attack for the game against Worcester.
“With Steve Mullaney missing on Lions duty it will also add valuable experience to the team for a crucial home game in the Championship.”
Broad’s next involvement at Test level will be England’s series against India, which begins at Edgbaston on August 1 before arriving at Trent Bridge for the third Test on August 18.
T20 returns to Trent Bridge on 4 July with a 2017 Finals Day rematch of Notts Outlaws v Birmingham Bears. Tickets are £10 in advance for adults, £7 for over-65s & under-21s and £5 for under 16s. Secure your seats now.
