Bell immediately shook his hand in pain and, after treatment by the England physiotherapist, walked off the field.

Monday saw Bell end a run of 19 Test innings without a hundred by top-scoring with 167 in England's first innings 569 for seven declared.

India lead the five-match series 1-0 after their 95-run win in the second Test at Lord's.
