Newcomer Jonathan Trott has given England a fitness boost ahead of their two NatWest Twenty20 internationals against West Indies.

The Warwickshire batsman was rated as doubtful after suffering a blow on the hand from a delivery by Liam Plunkett during practice on Tuesday.

But the 26-year-old was able to take part in a full session at the Brit Oval on Wednesday morning and, providing there is no reaction, will be available for selection for the matches on Thursday and Friday.

Trott has forced his way into contention for the opening limited-overs matches of Peter Moores’ reign after an impressive start to the domestic campaign.

His Warwickshire team-mate Ian Bell did not participate at the start of the session after suffering a groin injury when the players were put through their paces on Monday.

But England officials were hopeful he would be able to play some part in proceedings before the end of the session.

Bell will be keen to return to action after being overlooked by his county for last week’s Friends Provident Trophy semi-final with Hampshire at the Rose Bowl.
