Chris Woakes and Mark Wood were handed the new ball alongside James Anderson in England's warm-up games on the New Zealand tour and although a decision was yet to be made Broad was not anxious. "You've got to make sure you put it in the right areas", he said.
After 75 overs during an acclimatisation hit out in Hamilton last weekend the pink ball "still had the writing on, which is unheard of", Broad said.
"I think we're just going to be a bit more flexible", Broad told reporters.
However, just in case Taylor is ruled out of the match, New Zealand want to ensure they have adequate options as to who will take Taylor's spot in the playing XI.
Broad and James Anderson are expected to be joined in the attack by all-rounder Ben Stokes, who is reportedly anticipated to be fit enough to bowl despite back problems.
