Southampton - England's Ian Bell was sent for an X-ray after suffering a thumb blow while fielding during the third day of the third Test against India at Southampton on Tuesday.

Early in the day's play, India's Murali Vijay edged James Anderson just short of Bell at second slip, the ball hitting the fielder's left thumb.

Bell immediately shook his hand in pain and, after treatment by the England physiotherapist, walked off the field.

Monday saw Bell end a run of 19 Test innings without a hundred by top-scoring with 167 in England's first innings 569 for seven declared.

India lead the five-match series 1-0 after their 95-run win in the second Test at Lord's.
