Stuart Broad is a fitness doubt for England having missed training ahead of the second Test with India in Mumbai.

The touring vice-captain had been carrying a heel injury heading into the crushing first Test defeat in Ahmedabad but ended up playing a full part, and is expected to pass tests again after a spokesperson described his condition as "under the weather."

With seamer Steven Finn already ruled out of the Mumbai Test by a thigh problem, Surrey quick Stuart Meaker and Durham's Graham Onions are standing by should Broad fail to make the grade.

"We have been working hard in training; we have been doing the right things."

Alastair Cook

Captain Alastair Cook remains in optimistic mood ahead of the clash, despite a nine-wicket defeat in the series opener.

Cook, who struck a valiant second-innings 176 as England tried in vain to salvage something, said on Thursday: "We have been working hard in training; we have been doing the right things.

"It's about transferring that out into the middle and being able to get into the rhythm of batting out there. I am confident. The guys have done it in the past."
