The second match of three will get under way at Trent Bridge on Friday, and England have stuck with their winning formula.

He continued: "We know the West Indies will again prove challenging opposition, and our squad will be looking forward to preparing for another tough match later this week."

England squad (second Investec Test, v West Indies, at Trent Bridge): AJ Strauss (captain, Middlesex), JM Anderson (Lancashire), JM Bairstow (Yorkshire), IR Bell (Warwickshire), TT Bresnan (Yorkshire), SCJ Broad (Nottinghamshire), AN Cook (Essex), ST Finn (Middlesex), G Onions (Durham), KP Pietersen (Surrey), MJ Prior (wkt, Sussex), GP Swann (Nottinghamshire), IJL Trott (Warwickshire).
