    Trescothick to vanish for 'personal reasons'

    When we keep talking about Vaughany, England received yet another major blow after losing to the Board President's XI at Vadodara. Its been known that Trescothick would be immediately flying back home for personal reasons, though the reasons have not yet been disclosed. With this, Dravid could very well be walking out with a very new English captain at Nagpur on March 1. Whatever be the reason for Trescothick, and add in the injury concerns to Vaughan, KP, Collingwood, Jones - England and Fletcher already have a lot of excuses for the end of the series.

    I suspect it is related to his father-in-law suffering a head injury during England's tour of Pakistan. He didn't go back then. Today's report in "The Hindu" says 'Trescothick broke down in the dressing room, according to information from local officials.'

    I do feel sorry for him if there is some sort of calamity in the family.

    Aah, this brings us back to our conversation here:

    Surely, you can't be pleased that we're going to be playing a half-strength English side, instead of the Ashes-winning one.

    pratik: I don't care. I'll take a win over a weakened England side anyday over a draw/loss to a strong English side. You can't control who turns up for the opponents, although given the nature of the ailments, it may not be too long before conspiracy theories about spiked masala in their food begin. I think many of England's problems are of their own doing - Vaughan's knee, belly worries etc. The Indian side has enough on its plate, with an unproven seam bowling lineup and an unsettled opening & middle order in churning.
