England Squad Unchanged For 4th Test
London, Aug 14: England has named an unchanged squad for the fourth test against India, sticking with the 13 players who claimed the world No. 1 test ranking from the tourists.
Ravi Bopara retains his place as Jonathan Trott continues his recovery from a shoulder injury.
“Trott is making steady progress in his rehabilitation from his ongoing shoulder injury but he requires further treatment and won't be fit for the fourth and final npower Test match,” national selector Geoff Miller said in a statement.
Miller said fast bowler Chris Tremlett is available for selection following treatment for a back injury.
England routed India by an innings and 242 runs in the third test at Edgbaston on Saturday.
“The performance at Edgbaston was of the highest quality,” Miller said. “But the team will now refocus on finishing the series in a strong manner with much still to play for.”
