Pietersen struck with illness

England are sweating over the fitness of star player Kevin Pietersen today, after the batsman missed training due to an illness.

The news comes at the worst possible time for England, who need to win their next Test against India to avoid an embarrassing series loss.

Pietersen was diagnosed with a high temperature and will be examined again later today, which will help determine whether the batsman will be able to partake in Thursday’s do or die Test.
