The Ashes: James Anderson replaces Ben Stokes as England vice-captain

Ben Stokes How England star's enforced absence will affect the 2017 Ashes Can England beat Australia and retain the Ashes without Ben Stokes

England have suffered an embarrassing batting collapse against a crop of inexperienced Australian cricketers in the tour game in Adelaide.

Milenko then made very short work of Chris Woakes, caught-behind, and Craig Overton lbw three balls later for a pair in the match as England's collapse extended to seven wickets for 45 runs.

NSW seamers Simon Milenko and Gurinder Sandhu ripped through the Englishmen - Milenko has 4-32 and Sandhu 2-47.

The Ashes starts November 23 at The Gabba with England now grappling with a fresh row of injuries to their key players.

Cook, who began England's trip with a second-ball duck against a Western Australia XI last weekend, dug in manfully if far from convincingly in a stand of 79.

England's leading Test wicket-taker, James Anderson, has been named as Ben Stokes' replacement as vice-captain for the upcoming Ashes series.

Stokes is awaiting the outcome of a police investigation into a fight outside a nightclub in September. This is Anderson's fourth Test tour of Australia, so he brings vast experience to the job.

On Tuesday, England fast bowler Steven Finn left the tour with a knee injury and was replaced by the uncapped Tom Curran.

It was confirmed on Friday morning in Adelaide that Ball, who hurt himself when he lost his footing in his delivery stride on day two of four against a Cricket Australia XI, is to have a scan after being reassessed by England's medical staff.

And spinning allrounder Moeen Ali is yet to feature in the warm-up matches as he struggles with a side strain.
