England players escape unhurt in taxi incident

Dubai: Four England cricketers, including the star duo of Kevin Pietersen and Monty Panesar, escaped unhurt when the taxi they were travelling in was involved in a minor incident here.

"Stuart Broad, Jonathan Trott, Kevin Pietersen and Monty Panesar were travelling at around 100kph when the taxi`s bonnet suddenly flew up and into the car`s windscreen, obscuring the driver`s vision," according to reports.

"The driver was able to stop the car safely, however and the players were able to take a full part in training on Saturday evening."

The squad trained at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, which will host the opening ODI against Pakistan.

England were blanked 0-3 by Pakistan in the Test series.
