Caddick and Trescothick ruled out of first npower Test at Lord's

Media Release

Andrew Caddick and Marcus Trescothick have both been ruled out of the first npower Test Match against India at Lord's, starting on Thursday 25 July.

Caddick has been slowly returning to fitness following a left side-strain injury, sustained during the third npower Test Match against Sri Lanka at Old Trafford. Whilst he began to bowl gently last Sunday, he was not considered fit for Somerset's Cheltenham & Gloucester Trophy match today against Worcestershire.

Trescothick is also unavailable for selection as a result of a fractured thumb, sustained while fielding during today's Cheltenham & Gloucester Trophy semi-final fixture at Taunton.
