Victorious England name unchanged squad for final test

LONDON, (Reuters) – England named an unchanged  squad yesterday for the fourth test against India starting  on Thursday at The Oval.   

England became the top-ranked test nation when they  displaced India following Saturday’s win in the third test at  Egbaston which secured a 3-0 lead in the series.  
 
“Batsman Jonathan Trott is making steady progress in his  rehabilitation from his ongoing shoulder injury but he requires   further treatment and won’t be fit for the fourth and final test   match. As such Ravi Bopara retains his place in the squad,”  England National Selector Geoff Miller said in a statement.  

Bowler Chris Tremlett is available for selection following  continued treatment for his back injury and he and Steven Finn  are included in a broader 13-man squad for the last Test match  of the English summer.  

Bopara failed again with the bat in Birmingham while Tim  Bresnan excelled with the ball in Tremlett’s absence.
