England injured recovering well

Jon Lewis, James Anderson and Kevin Pietersen all trained well in England’s first Caribbean net session today, as all the pieces of their World Cup puzzle fall into place.

Lewis, who injured his ankle during the Commonwealth Bank series in Australia earlier this year, was able to bowl “several overs” according to Reuters.

Kevin Pietersen, who left Australia prematurely with a broken rib, also had a light session, as did James Anderson who is recovering from recurring back injuries.

“We just cleared some cobwebs from the flight. It was nice to have a little net,” said captain Michael Vaughan.

“You are always quite sceptical about how (WI wickets) will play. The first two weeks are crucial for me, but also the team.

“Kevin will certainly come back in and over the next two warm-up games it is up to the players to hold their hand up and stake a claim.”

England will take on minnow Bermuda on the 5th of March for their first practice match and Australia on the 9th, before getting their World Cup campaign underway on the 16th of March against New Zealand in St Lucia.
