England captain Andrew Strauss confirmed bowler Chris Tremlett will be monitored ahead of tomorrow's second Test against India but remains "confident" the paceman will be available for the Trent Bridge clash.

Tremlett, who teamed up so effectively with Stuart Broad and James Anderson in the first Test, missed training yesterday with a "tight" hamstring and only trained briefly at the Nottinghamshire ground this morning.



Strauss, however, said: "I think he's fine, obviously he's had a bit of a niggle with his hamstring. He's just getting a massage and will be coming out for a bit of a bowl later.



"At the moment we expect him to be fit for tomorrow but obviously like all these things we'll see in the morning.



"We're confident he should be okay.



"You've always got to weigh these things in, it's a short turn-around between Test matches but we're not going to pick someone in the side unless we're sure he is 100% fit and able to get through the full five days."
