Dilley recovering from the effects of sun in Mumbai


England's assistant coach, Graham Dilley is expected to rejoin the squad in Hyderabad during the next 24 hours after an illness scare.

Dilley, 42, was taken to a Mumbai hospital last night suffering from the effects of the sun. The former England fast bowler did not travel to Hyderabad early this morning, but has since confirmed that he is feeling better.

Dilley expects to rejoin the touring party tomorrow ahead of the next warm-up game against a Board President's XI. He felt unwell during a coaching session with the five players omitted from the tour opener in Mumbai.
