Morgan, Shahzad retain Test places against Pak
Advertisement
#1
Eoin Morgan and Ajmal Shahzad have retained their places in England's Test squad for the first match of the four-Test series against Pakistan at Trent Bridge starting next week.

But Ravi Bopara will consider himself hard done by the selectors after missing out on the final selection as he has been on prolific form, scoring back-to-back hundreds for Essex in the County Championship.


Middlesex seamer Steven Finn returns to the England squad following a successful Test series against Bangladesh, while Shahzad has been given yet another chance to build on his Test debut from the same series, having overcome an ankle injury that limited him to four overs in his most recent England outing, the third ODI against Bangladesh
at Edgbaston two weeks ago.

National Selector, Geoff Miller, said: "We have picked a very strong squad for the first Test against a Pakistan side that will be high on confidence following their recent win against Australia, according to cricinfo report.

"We've been encouraged by the form shown by a number of England players involved in County Championship matches this week and those that are coming back from injury or rest, such as Kevin Pietersen, have been working very hard ahead of the first Test next week."

England squad:


Andrew Strauss (capt), James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Paul Collingwood, Alastair Cook, Steven Finn, Eoin Morgan, Kevin Pietersen, Matt Prior (wk), Ajmal Shahzad, Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott
