England have named an unchanged 13-man squad for the third and deciding Test against West Indies to be played at Lord's from 7th September.

This also means Tom Westley, who has been struggling in the series with 19 runs from two matches will get another chance to prove his mettle at the international level.

The Essex batsman, who was drafted into the squad following a century for England Lions during the tour game against South Africa has managed a solitary half-century in seven innings for England and averages just 20.14.

Apart from the XI that featured in the Headingley Test, England also have uncapped spinner Mason Crane and Toby Roland-Jones in the squad.

The series is currently level at 1-1 following West Indies' five-wicket win in the second game in Leeds.

England squad for second Test:

Joe Root (captain), Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Jonathan Bairstow (wk), Stuart Broad, Alastair Cook, Mason Crane, Dawid Malan, Toby Roland-Jones, Ben Stokes, Mark Stoneman, Tom Westley, Chris Woakes.
