Anderson, Buttler receive Ashes call

Anderson, Buttler receive Ashes call

Lancashire pair picked for first Test at Edgbaston

Lancashire's James Anderson and Jos Buttler have been selected in England's squad for the first Specsavers Ashes Test match against Australia at Edgbaston.

Anderson missed the Test against Ireland this week but is making good progress from his right calf injury and is expected to be fit for the first Test.

Buttler returns to the squad after being rested for the Ireland match following his exertions in England's ICC Cricket World Cup winning campaign.

The wicket keeper yesterday signed a new three-year contract to stay at Emirates Old Trafford until at least 2022.

The match at Edgbaston begins on Thursday 1 August.
