Anderson misses out as England announce unchanged squad for third Test

James Anderson missed out yet again as England on Monday named an unchanged squad for the third Test at Headingley.

Sam Curran was able to retain his place in a 12-man squad for the third Test which starts on Thursday.

Anderson, who only bowled only four overs in the first Test at Edgbaston because of a calf injury, will miss out the third Test as well.

Jofra Archer, who made his Test debut at Lord's, took five wickets to provide England a much needed X-factor in pace department.

Anderson will continue his rehabilitation this week by playing for Lancashire second XI against Leicestershire in a three-day friendly match in Liverpool starting on Tuesday.

England squad

Rory Burns (Surrey), Jason Roy (Surrey), Joe Root (Yorkshire, capt), Joe Denly (Kent), Ben Stokes (Durham), Jos Buttler (Lancashire), Jonny Bairstow (Yorkshire, wkt), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire), Jofra Archer (Sussex), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), Jack Leach (Somerset), Sam Curran (Surrey)
