London: England suffered a blow ahead of next week's first Test with India on Wednesday when star opening batsman Marcus Trescothick was ruled out with a cracked thumb.

The England vice-captain, who was named man-of-the-series in the recent One-day triangular series, suffered the injury during the Limited Overs quarter-final between his side Somerset and Worcestershire. Trescothick left the field clutching his hand when he stopped a fierce cover drive from former England batsman Graeme Hick.
