Andrew Strauss will lead England's bid for glory in the Cricket World Cup
English cricket fans planning trips to India, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka to cheer on Andrew Strauss and the Ashes-winning side in the World Cup have been warned to take out valid travel insurance cover before they leave.
Members of the Barmy Army who intend to travel to watch England in the one -day international tournament have also been urged by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to make sure they have had the necessary injections, vaccinations or medicines to protect them against diseases such as malaria.
David Collier, chief executive of the ECB, said: "The safety of our fans is paramount and we urge everyone intending to travel to south Asia ... to visit the FCO website to get the latest travel advice."
The FCO has also advised supporters, who will be visiting the countries during the competition between February 19 and April 2, to avoid India's border with Pakistan, other than in Manipur and Wagah.
