Trott doubtful for rest of 2nd Test

Nottingham, Jul 30: 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 here.

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.
