A scan on England batsman Jonathan Trott showed no bone damage to his left shoulder after an awkward fall fielding in the second Test against India at Trent Bridge.

Trott dived to stop a Rahul Dravid cover drive after lunch. Although he prevented the boundary, he immediately looked in discomfort and writhed on the outfield clutching the shoulder. He left the field immediately, accompanied by the team's physio and doctor.

"Jonathan Trott is to undergo a scan later today on his left shoulder to determine his participation in the rest of the Test," an ECB statement said announced shortly afterwards. "He won't field again today (Saturday)."

Though the scan reveals Trott has not broken his shoulder it remains to be seen what part he will be able to play in the remainder of the Test and series.

Ian Bell came in to bat in his place at three as England started their second innings in the evening session.

It is the latest mishap to affect an England player in the match after spinner Graeme Swann hurt his left hand when batting on Friday evening.
