Anderson returns to England squad for 3rd Test

London:

Fast bowler James Anderson has been recalled to the England squad for the third and final Test against Sri Lanka after recovering from a side strain.

Anderson was injured in the dramatic victory over the tourists in the first Test in Cardiff and was replaced by the uncapped Jade Dernbach for the second Test at Lord's, which ended in a draw.

Dernbach, who was 12th man at Lord's, makes way for the return of Anderson in the only change to the squad that needs either a victory or a draw in Southampton to clinch the three-match series.

Anderson will get a runout in Lancashire's Twenty20 match against Worcestershire on Sunday. If he emerges unscathed, he will return to lead England's pace attack - most likely replacing Steven Finn.
