Health problems for England going into crunch match

6:02 am on 16 March 2011

The England cricket squad have had some health problems going into their crunch group match at the World Cup in Chennai.

Captain Andrew Strauss and spinner Graeme Swann both missed yesterday's training session with stomach bugs, though they are likely to play in tomorrow's muist win match against the West Indies.

James Anderson and Jonathan Trott have also been off colour this week.

A loss for England against the West Indies tomorrow would confirm Bangladesh as the fourth quarter-finalists from group B.
