  • England have made four changes in their 12-man squad for the 2nd Test against India
  • England rest James Anderson, Jos Buttler, Dom Bess for 2nd Test
  • England currently lead four-match Test series 1-0 after winning 1st Test

England announced their 12-man squad for the second Test against India in Chennai, with James Anderson and Dominic Bess being the two big names to miss out. The visitors, led by Joe Root, made a number of changes, with Anderson, Bess, Jos Buttler and Jofra Archer making way for Moeen Ali, Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes, Ben Foakes and Olly Stone.

Meanwhile, wicketkeeper-batsman Foakes, who is replacing Buttler, will be featuring in his first Test in over two years after last featuring against West Indies in 2019. As a result, they have included Chris Woakes, Stuart Broad and Olly Stone in the 12-member squad for the second Test. James Anderson has been rested for the second game so that he can be physically fit for the pink-ball Test in Ahmedabad.

“Stuart will play and we expect him to do exactly what he has done in the recent past in the England shirt,” Root said.

“He’s been rested – we talk about that rotation policy being crucial to our team’s performance so they’re fresh when they come in. But also making sure we’re getting the best out of the likes of Stuart, Jimmy and the rest of our fast bowlers. He’s been extremely professional about things, all he’s tried to do is make sure he’s in the best possible place to start extremely well.

Here’s England’s 12-man squad for the second Test:

Joe Root, Rory Burns, Dom Sibley, Daniel Lawrence, Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Moeen Ali, Jack Leach, Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes, Ben Foakes and Olly Stone.
