Anderson named in Test squad

Anderson named in Test squad

Lancs fast bowler included to face Ireland, Buttler rested

Lancashire pace bowler James Anderson has been named in a 13-man squad to face Ireland in a Test match at Lord's starting next Wednesday 24 July.

Anderson has not played since suffering a low grade calf muscle tear in the Specsavers County Championship match against Durham at Sedbergh.

Jos Buttler is rested for the fixture due to his exploits in England's ICC Cricket World Cup winning campaign.

A final squad for the first Specsavers Ashes Test will be named in due course.

Both Anderson and Buttler will be part of a 16-man pre-Ashes training camp this weekend at St George's Park, the FA's national football centre based in Burton-Upon-Trent.
