London:

Tim Bresnan has been called into England's squad for the decisive fourth Test against Pakistan at Lord's.

Yorkshire pace bowler Bresnan is the only addition to the group which lost to Pakistan by four wickets in the third Test at the Oval on Saturday.

Andrew Strauss's team lead the series 2-1 going into the final Test, which starts on Thursday, and must avoid defeat in north London to clinch a series victory.

England national selector Geoff Miller said, "There were some real positives from the last Test, such as Alastair Cook's outstanding century and the way the team fought hard on the final day defending a small total.

"But ultimately the team is looking for an improved performance to finish the series well.

"We have been saying throughout this entire series that consistency is key and that certainly remains the case.

"We know Pakistan are a dangerous side, which they showed in the last Test, so we will be looking for a strong performance across the board in this final Test match of the summer."

England's 12-man squad for the fourth and final Test against Pakistan, which starts at Lord's on Thursday: Andrew Strauss (capt), Alastair Cook, Jonathan Trott, Kevin Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Eoin Morgan, Matt Prior (wkt), Graeme Swann, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Steven Finn, Tim Bresnan.
