England selectors were much convinced with the performances of Trott and Bell in the Warwickshire match against Nottinghamshire by scoring centuries. That means prospects of Mark Ramprakash and Robert Key playing the Oval Test is becoming null. It is understood Ashley Giles who played key role in their inclusion in to the team as he himself is the director of cricket for Warwickshire.
Another key thing for England is Andrew Flintoff right knee is improving and all set to play in Oval. He might come in place of Graham Onions. Onions have so far done well but lacking swinging deliveries like James Anderson.
England Squad for Oval Test:
1 Andrew Strauss (captain), 2 Alastair Cook, 3 Ian Bell, 4 Paul Collingwood, 5 Jonathan Trott, 6 Matt Prior (wk), 7 Andrew Flintoff, 8 Stuart Broad, 9 Graeme Swann, 10 James Anderson, 11 Steve Harmison, 12 Monty Panesar, 13 Graham Onions, 14 Ryan Sidebottom.
