Anderson rested for final Test
England have announced their squad for the third Test against the West Indies and pace bowler James Anderson has been rested.
The 29-year-old has been leading the England attack of late, with two fine performances against the Windies to help his side record victories at Lord's and Trent Bridge. England are hoping to record a clean sweep against the Windies with a victory at Edgbaston next week, as Steven Finn and Graham Onions get set to battle it out for a place in the starting XI to replace Anderson. National selector Geoff Miller believes the Lancashire bowler is in need of a rest with a busy summer of cricket ahead for the number one Test side in the world. He said: "We have been made to work hard for our two victories so far and are delighted to have secured the series, but we know that we will need to continue to play some good cricket if we want a third win against West Indies this week. "James Anderson will miss this Investec Test as we look to manage his workload ahead of a busy period of cricket this summer and beyond, a decision which is in the best interests of the team and James himself."
