Ben Stokes will have a scan on his hamstring injury on Thursday afternoon, the ECB has announced.

Stokes suffered a tight left hamstring during fielding practice on Wednesday and was then unable to bowl in the nets.

The Durham all-rounder is not expected to bowl or field on Thursday, placing his involvement in the second and deciding Test against Pakistan into some doubt.

Stokes sat out England’s squad football match early on Thursday – while the uncapped Sam Curran, brought in as cover for Stokes, took a full part.

A brief England and Wales Cricket Board update on his condition added: “[Stokes] feels better this morning. He has done some running at full intensity without issues, (but is) expected to have a fitness test in the morning.”

Curran, whose brother Tom played two Tests for England during the winter’s Ashes series, would make his first international appearance in any format if selected on Friday.

Earlier this month Curran took 10 wickets in a match for the first time as Surrey wrapped up a County Championship Division One victory over Yorkshire by an innings and 17 runs at The Oval.
