England have opted for an unchanged squad for the second Ashes Test at Lord's, keeping faith with the players that won the opening match by 14 runs at Trent Bridge.

Tim Bresnan and Graham Onions remain as additions to the playing eleven that put England 1-0 up in the five-match series.

"It was a fantastic start to the Investec Test series with both sides showing a huge amount of skill and determination," National Selector Geoff Miller.

"I would like to congratulate England on showing a great deal of composure to win by 14 runs. I have no doubt that the rest of the series will be equally compelling.

"We have selected the same squad for the Lord’s Test as this continues to provide options for Alastair Cook and Andy Flower."

England Test squad: Alastair Cook (captain), James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow, Ian Bell, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Steven Finn, Graham Onions, Kevin Pietersen, Matthew Prior, Joe Root, Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott
