England’s woes on India Tour continue as Michael Vaughan has been ruled out of the complete Test Series. Michael Vaughan is out due to the same knee injury which made him miss the first Test in the last Series against Pakistan. All rounder Andrew Flintoff has now been elevated to the Captaincy of the side with even Vaughan’s deputy Trescothick being absent for this Series. The first Test begins day after tomorrow and England are struggling to get 11 fit players on the ground. Middle Order batsman Owais Shah has been called up to join the squad. He along with Alistair Cook and James Anderson were not part of the original Test Squad, so is Monty Panesar who was later added to strengthen the spin department. England have now lost Ashley Giles, Marcus Trescothick and Michael Vaughan in this Series. Ashes hero Simon Jones is also injured and he might well miss out the first Test at Nagpur.
