Michael Vaughan has inisted he will be fit to play the world cup and captain England.

"I certainly hope [I will be fit]," he said. "For the last two-and-a-half weeks I have been in constant rehab, and though I don't want to start shouting too soon, I've passed a lot of tests and I've been building up strength for that game against New Zealand."
"The knee is fine," he added. "In Australia there was no reaction in training or in the few games that I did play, and that's been a really good sign. Andrew Flintoff will deputise if it gets to that stage, but hope it won't come to that. I deserve a bit of luck, and hopefully I'm going to get it."
