ENGLAND will take to the field against West Indies on Friday with Michael Vaughan at the helm - in full body scaffold and iron lung.

The indefatigable Yorkshire star insists he can still bring a lot to the game despite being completely immobilized in the nets on Tuesday when a stiff breeze caught him 'in the wrong way' and twisted every joint in his body.

"Michael means a lot to the team, even in this amount of ironmongery he's the best captain in World cricket," said chairman of selectors David Graveney.

The umpires are believed to have allowed special dispensation for England's top batsman to be winched into position at extra cover while West Indies are batting. A small team of military helicopters will be used to allow him to run between the wickets, a first in world cricket.

"It's not about Michael Vaughan's medical condition it's about Michael Vaughan the cricketer," said Michael Vaughan (the cricketer) from his hospital bed.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
