Batsman Jonathan Trott says England is confident captain Andrew Strauss and main spinner Graeme Swann will recover in time for Thursday's must-win World Cup Group B game against the West Indies.
Trott told reporters Tuesday that both players were expected to recover and would be "hopefully training tomorrow" after missing a morning practice due to stomach upsets.
Opener Strauss and off-spinner Swann are crucial players for England, which is fighting for a place in the quarterfinals following upset losses to Ireland and Bangladesh.
England has five points from five matches with wins over South Africa and the Netherlands and a high-scoring tie against India, but will be eliminated in the first round if it loses to the West Indies.
