England pace bowler Stuart Broad is targeting full fitness in time for the 2015 World Cup and will undergo knee surgery in light of the same on September 4.

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

A statement issued by the ECB said that the board's medical team confirmed that Broad is to have surgery on his right knee on Thursday 4 September, Sport24 reported.

The statement also said that a rehabilitation and recovery programme would be determined for the pace bowler 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, the report added.
