Kerrigan recalled for second Test

The England cricket selectors have recalled spin bowler Simon Kerrigan to their squad ahead of the second Test against India, following the draw in the opening match at Trent Bridge.

The hosts struggled to see off a resilient batting performance from the visitors in the first Test in Nottingham with their four-man seam attack and part-time spinner Moeen Ali.

India finished with innings of 457 and 391 for nine declared, and England captain Alastair Cook says Kerrigan will give them a different option ahead of the second match at Lord's, starting on Thursday night (NZT).
