CRICKET: England hit by 'Delhi Belly'

ENGLAND face a selection dilemma for today's second warm-up match against an Indian board President's XI, with four players suffering from a stomach bug.

All three spinners - Shaun Udal, Ian Blackwell and Monty Panesar - are affected, along with fast bowler Simon Jones.

It was hoped the three-day contest in Baroda would go a long way to deciding which of the slow bowlers should feature in next week's opening Test, while Jones is looking to up his workload after ankle surgery.

To make matters worse, Paul Collingwood is doubtful with a back injury.
