England make just one change for final Test match

6:41 am on 23 August 2010

The England cricket team has recalled bowler Tim Bresnan for the final test against Pakistan at Lord's, after their four-wicket defeat at Kennington Oval in London.

Bresnan's the only change to the squad that lost the third test, which now leaves the four-match series hanging in the balance.

England lead the series 2-1.

Their captain, Andrew Strauss, has also restated his belief in England's top order, despite the batsmen collapsing in both their innings at The Oval.

England's top order of Kevin Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Alastair Cook and Strauss are all averaging under 30 runs in three Tests against Pakistan.

But Strauss says he has no worries about his batsmen as they head into their last Test match, before they begin the defence of the Ashes against Australia in November.
