the fourth Ashes test, including uncapped Derbyshire
left-armer Mark Footitt and Yorkshire seamer Liam
The Test starts Thursday at Trent Bridge.
The England and Wales Cricket Board announced
the squad on Saturday, a day after England beat Aus-
tralia by eight wickets with two days to spare at Edg-
baston in the third test. Steven Finn made a triumphant
return to test cricket with match figures of 8-117.
Leading 2-1, England can clinch the unpredictable
series with victory in Nottingham but will miss its
all-time leading wicket-taker James Anderson, who
left the third test mid-over Thursday with a side strain.
There were no other changes to the Edgbaston squad
with Mark Wood most likely to replace Anderson after
sitting out Birmingham with an ankle niggle.
