England batsman Ian Bell has survived a major scare after scans showed that his thumb was not broken.

Bell was struck on the thumb when an inside edge from India batsman Murali Vijay fell short of him at second slip on the third day of the third Test in Southampton.

Bell did return to the Ageas Bowl later in the day, but he was unable to field. Instead, he was seen sitting on the sidelines with heavy strapping and ice on his thumb.
