The injection follows discomfort the fast bowler experienced during the 227-run win in the first Test at the same venue, earlier this week.

"The issue is not related to any previous injury and it is hoped the treatment will allow the condition to settle down quickly, allowing the player to return to action in time for the third Test in Ahmedabad," a statement by the England and Wales Cricket Board said.

Stuart Broad will be in line to play the second Test alongside his veteran teammate James Anderson. The touring team leads the four-match series 1-0.
