Trescothick quits Indian tour

February 25, 2006 17:47 IST

England batsman Marcus Trescothick will return home immediately from the tour of India for personal reasons, coach Duncan Fletcher said on Saturday.

"He is going home due to personal reasons. Please don't ask more about it," he told reporters.

Team management has called for a replacement.

The vice captain's departure adds to England's tour woes with captain Micahel Vaughan doubtful for the start of the first test on Wednesday due to the recurrence of a knee problem.

England lost their tour-match against the Board President's XI by eight wickets on Saturday.
