England take full-strength party to India
England's tour of India is back on and the full-strength Test squad will travel to Chennai tomorrow afternoon.
Coach Peter Moores' hope that all of the team's frontline players would resume the trip, aborted last weekend following the Mumbai terrorist attacks, was realised at a lengthy security briefing tonight.
Confirmation that the two-Test series would proceed - pending a full security inspection being made at Mohali over the coming days - arrived at 10.50pm local time.
Senior players Andrew Flintoff and Steve Harmison were among those wavering, Moores confirmed yesterday, but of the original party only the injured Ryan Sidebottom stays away - he was today replaced by the uncapped Kent paceman Amjad Khan.
