England selectors have named a 13-man squad for the third Investec Test match at Edgbaston starting on Wednesday August 3.

Durham and England all-rounder Ben Stokes will miss the Test after an MRI scan revealed that he has sustained a torn right calf during the fourth day of England’s 330-run victory over Pakistan at Emirates Old Trafford. The 25-year-old will be reviewed by the England medical team next week, when the squad reports to Birmingham on Monday morning.

Nottinghamshire seamer Jake Ball is included in the squad alongside Middlesex pace bowler Steven Finn and Yorkshire leg-spinner Adil Rashid.

The series is evenly poised at 1-1 with two Tests remaining – at Edgbaston starting next week and the Kia Oval commencing on Thursday August 11.
