Durban: England’s leading batsman Michael Vaughan is struggling to be fit for Wednesday’s World Cup Group A match against India because of a right calf strain.
England and Wales Cricket Board spokesman Andrew Walpole said: “He is a concern. He will be continuing to have treatment and will be assessed in 24 hours.”
Vaughan played a big role in Saturday’s win over Pakistan with a half-century but did not field. He later underwent a scan.
England must beat either India or Australia to keep their hopes alive of reaching the second stage of the tournament.
Vaughan had been in good nick in the World Cup, with two half-centuries against Namibia and Pakistan in three outings.
Vaughan missed a Test series in Pakistan at the end of 2000 with a torn right calf muscle. The right-hander’s career has been blighted by a string of injuries. (Agencies)
