Chanderpaul facing fitness worry

Investec Test Series

Keep up to date with England's Investec Test Series against West Indies with our in-depth day-by-day reports - plus all the reaction, highlights and photos

West Indies’ batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul has emerged as a doubt for the third Investec Test against England due to a side strain.

The tourists were excused from announcing their team today as persistent rain prevented even a toss from taking place at Edgbaston.

However, Chanderpaul - the number-one ranked Test batsman - may yet miss out on selection, should he fail to recover from his injury setback.

“He went to the hospital for a scan,” confirmed a West Indies team spokesman. “A day off gives him a chance to see how well he goes.”

West Indies, 2-0 down heading into this final Test of three, have already seen pacemen Shannon Gabriel and Kemar Roach return home due to injuries.
