After his side lost Sunday's opening game of a three-match T20 series by 27 runs, Broad said he wanted to be fully recovered in time for the World Twenty in Bangladesh later this month.

"No panic with the knee, had it a long time," tweeted Broad. 

"The workload over the winter has got it to a point it needs treatment. 7 days should be fine."

The second and third matches between West Indies and England are on Tuesday and Thursday at Bridgetown's Kensington Oval.
