Meanwhile struggling fast bowler James Anderson was seen receiving treatment for a problem with his right shoulder during training but a team spokesman said he remained available for selection.
"They're two key players and would be in anybody's team," England batsman Jonathan Trott said of Strauss and Swann.
"I'm pretty confident they will be all right. These things are normally 24 or 48 hours. I'll give you a better idea on Wednesday if they train."
"It's one of those things. You go from sweating on the field into cold air conditioning and stuff like that. I'm not 100 percent today but I should be tomorrow."
England must beat the West Indies at Chennai's Chidambaram Stadium on Thursday to have a chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals, and even then they will need other results to go their way.
Defeat would see England, already beaten by Ireland and Bangladesh, crash out of the World Cup before the knockout phase.
