Hamstring tightness restricts Victorian to light duties on eve of third ODI at Trent Bridge

A fresh injury concern struck the Australia camp on the eve of the third ODI against England with Glenn Maxwell confined to light duties at a Trent Bridge training session.
Maxwell reported tight hamstrings and was managed through the session in a bid to be right for the match.
Australia must win Tuesday night's third ODI or risk losing a fourth successive bilateral series for the first time in the 47-year history of one-day cricket.
The Victorian, who was Australia's top scorer with 62 in the first match, walked laps of Trent Bridge and did some throwing on his own, but was largely a spectator as the rest of the squad fine-tuned.
Australia were buoyed by the sight of fast bowler Billy Stanlake charging in at full pace, seemingly over the toe injury that had sidelined him from last weekend's defeat in Cardiff.
His return would be a huge boost to the team that conceded 8-342 at Sophia Gardens, and Stanlake was Australia's best in the series opener at The Oval, with 2-44 from his 10 overs and bowling with real pace.
Captain Tim Paine also took his place at training to end any doubts over his fitness after copping a nasty blow to the face from an erratically bouncing ball in the second ODI.
"He's a bit sore but he has been given the all-clear from the dentist," said vice-captain Aaron Finch.
"He has a few stitches internally and externally but he's pretty tough."
The Australians had one of their shorter training sessions at Trent Bridge under new coach Justin Langer, and were joined by Dan Christian who has linked up with Nottinghamshire for the local T20 competition after his stint on the Aboriginal XI 1868 tribute tour.
There was, however, extensive time in the nets for D'Arcy Short, Travis Head and Marcus Stoinis. All three impressed in Australia's warm-up matches, but none have yet made the most of their starts in the ODI series.
Short worked closely in the nets with Ricky Ponting, an assistant coach for Australia on this tour, and that pair joined in a long discussion with Langer as Australia's training came to a close.
England were buoyed by their skipper Eoin Morgan getting through training and he is set to resume his spot in the side having been a last-minute withdrawal in Cardiff after he had back spasms.
The world No.1 side are on a roll and with two wins already under the belt will likely play an unchanged side as they seek to wrap up the series at the first opportunity.
They are, however, going to be without Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes for the remainder of this series.
Stokes, who missed the entire Ashes summer amid the fallout from his infamous night out in Bristol and has a pending court case to contest a charge of affray, has not faced Australia since last year's Champions Trophy tournament.
Stokes is back running at "90 per cent capacity" and is able to bat, the ECB said in a statement, with his rehabilitation to continue during the fourth and fifth ODIs in Durham and Manchester.
The 27-year-old is expected to be available for the three-match T20I series against India next month.
Woakes' prognosis appears significantly less optimistic, however, which has been complicated by a flare-up of a chronic knee problem.
The paceman is set to begin a rehab program designed to address both injuries.
A return date has not been specified for Woakes but the ECB said he would not play any earlier than next month's three-game ODI series against India.
