Visitors field coaches Paul Collingwood & Marcus Trescothick as substitute fielders

IND vs ENG: Marcus Trescothick and Paul Collingwood were given the duties of substitute fielders in the absence of Rehan Ahmed and Ollie Robinson.

With fast bowler Ollie Robinson under the weather in Dharamshala, England have listed coaching staff member Paul Collingwood and Marcus Trescothick as substitute fielders, for the first day of the fifth Test against India. With Robinson out, the visitors were left with 14 players, as Rehan Ahmed headed back home after the fourth match.

As a result, Trescothick and Collingwood would take up substitute fielder duties, as and when required. Also, as per the ICC rule a team must name four substitute fielder for a match. Meanwhile, both the members had decent reputation as fielders, with Collingwood taking 96 catches in 68 Tests, and Trescothick taking 95 catches in 76 Tests.

The coaching staff also did their bit, to be ready, and trained for slip-fielding on Wednesday.
