Nottingham: Jul 30, 2011

A shoulder injury suffered while fielding has put a question mark over England batsman Jonathan Trott’s participation in the remainder of the second Test against India.

Trott, also an occasional medium pacer, fell after lunch when diving at mid-off in an attempt to stop Rahul Dravid from scoring a run.

An England statement said he would not field again on the second day.

The 30-year-old South Africa-born Trott, visibly in pain, needed several minutes’ on-field treatment before he walked off the field.

“Jonathan Trott to undergo a scan later today (Saturday)/this evening on left shoulder to determine his participation in the rest of the Test. He won’t field again today,” an England statement said.

England lead the four-match series 1-0 after their 196-run win in the first Test at Lord’s.
