Dear

    Remove the crack area broken bricks

Before doing any repair of cracks, make sure that the cracks are stabilized and are not widening further. Remove broken bricks by scratching cement mortar from the joints gently.
 

Prepare the surface

All loose material should be cleaned from the portion by brushing and washing. Wet the surface 24 hours before application of new plaster.

Lay MS bars with cement concrete and fix new bricks thoroughly
Lay fresh cement mortar with coarse sand in 1:4 and fix new bricks. Fill all joints around bricks with mortar tightly with the help of iron tools. 
 

Do curing and finishing

The repaired surface should be kept moist up to 7 days.  When surface is dry, it should be finished according to adjoining area.
Take help of good mason for repair and if possible than make visit of civil engineer for site inspection and advice for possible guidance in repair work.
