England paceman Chris Tremlett is a doubt for Friday's second Test with India after suffering with hamstring and back problems since the first Test.

"We expect him to be fit but obviously we'll see in the morning," said England captain Andrew Strauss on Thursday.

Steven Finn's late call-up to the squad has increased speculation that Tremlett will not be risked at Trent Bridge, but Tim Bresnan is the other seam option.

India seamer Zaheer Khan has been ruled out because of a hamstring injury.

The 32-year-old left-armer picked up the injury during the first Test at Lord's last week, pulling up during England's first innings and failing to bowl again in the match, and will be replaced by either Munaf Patel or Sreesanth at Trent Bridge.

Bresnan narrowly failed to make the XI at Lord's ahead of Stuart Broad, so may be next in line to replace Tremlett if England maintain consistency of selection.

However, 22-year-old Finn's added pace and bounce - like Tremlett he is 6ft 7in and seven inches taller than Bresnan - could work in his favour if a change is required and the selectors want more of a like-for-like replacement.

Tremlett, who took four wickets in England's 196-run win over India in the first Test and took Test best figures of 6-48 against Sri Lanka earlier in the summer, appeared to be carrying a hamstring injury as he bowled during the tourists' second innings at Lord's.

He had already missed training on Wednesday with a tight hamstring and only trained briefly at Trent Bridge on Thursday.

But Strauss, speaking earlier in the day, added: "I think he's fine, obviously he's had a bit of a niggle with his hamstring.

"At the moment we expect him to be fit but obviously like all these things we'll see in the morning - we're confident he should be OK.

"You've always got to weigh these things in, it's a short turnaround 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."

While England wait on Tremlett, India will definitely be without Zaheer. The left-armer impressed initially at Lord's with an excellent new-ball spell which saw him dismiss both England openers, Strauss and Alastair Cook, before pulling up clutching his hamstring in his 14th over.
