Five key Indian players, including Sachin Tendulkar and pace spearhead Zaheer Khan, who have been down with flu, will undergo a fitness test to determine if they were fit enough to play in the second cricket one-dayer against England on Friday.

Apart from Tendulkar and Zaheer, Ajit Agarkar, R P Singh and Yuvraj Singh were the other players to have been hit by the viral bug.

India are trailing the seven-match one-day series after losing the first day and night game at the Rose Bowl in Southampton on Tuesday.

The second one-dayer, also a day-night affair, is expected to begin on time with the sun shining brightly.
