CURRENT MATCH: Sussex CCC vs Middlesex
Jofra Archer in squad for 2nd Ashes Test

Jofra Archer has been named in a 12-man England squad for the 2nd Specsavers Ashes Test match against Australia at Lord’s starting next Wednesday 14th August.

Somerset left-arm orthodox spinner Jack Leach returns to the squad in place of Worcestershire all-rounder Moeen Ali. Leach, who was player of the match the last time England played at Lord’s in victory over Ireland last month, is set to add to his five Test caps.

James Anderson (right calf) and Olly Stone (back) miss out through injury. Both seamers were included in the squad for the first Test at Edgbaston.

 The squad will report to London on Sunday.
