Overton added to England squad for Adelaide Test

Seamer Craig Overton has been added to a 12-man England squad for the second Ashes Test against Australia which starts Saturday in Adelaide.

Spinner Moeen Ali was also included amid concerns over a cut spinning finger while there was no place for leg-spinner Mason Crane.

Captain Joe Root will name his team at the toss shortly before the start of play.

England head into the day-night Adelaide Test 1-0 down in the five-match series after losing by 10 wickets at the Gabba.

The Adelaide match, the first-ever Ashes Test under lights, has long been earmarked as England's best chance of a win in Australia given the extra swing and movement of the pink ball in twilight conditions.

England - Alastair Cook, Mark Stoneman, James Vince, Joe Root (capt), Dawid Malan, Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Chris Woakes, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Jake Ball, Craig Overton
