England have added batsman Ian Bell to their squad for the final two One-Day Internationals against Pakistan following his recovery from a broken bone in his foot.

One day after England were beaten by 23 runs in the third match at The Oval, Bell stroked a classy 107 in 95 balls to guide Warwickshire to victory over Somerset in the CB40 Final at Lord's - England's domestic one-day competition - and he has been rewarded with an immediate recall.

Paul Collingwood missed the match at The Oval due to illness and Bell's inclusion in the squad gives added cover and since returning from the injury, suffered during a One-Day International defeat to Bangladesh earlier in the summer, he has been in good form, scoring two half-centuries and two centuries for Warwickshire.

The fourth ODI is on Monday (20th September) at Lord's and the series concludes at The Rose Bowl on Wednesday (22nd September).

England lead the series 2-1.
