Graham Dilley, England's assistant coach, was yesterday taken to hospital after complaining of feeling unwell a week into the tour of India. He is thought to be suffering from low blood pressure brought on by heat and dehydration. Dilley will remain in hospital for observation and tests.

According to David Clarke, the media relations officer with the team, Dilley began to feel ill at the ground, where England were concluding their game against the Bombay President's XI. "A doctor was called by the team physio Dean Conway and he suggested Graham went to hospital as a precaution," Clarke said last night.

"He left the hotel in a wheelchair," Clarke added. "An injection has remedied the symptoms, something he has apparently experienced before. He'll have tests and if clear he will rejoin the tour in 24 hours."
