2nd Ashes Test At Lords

England have dropped Moeen Ali and recalled fellow spinner Jack Leach into a 12-man squad for the second Ashes Test against Australia at Lord's starting on Wednesday.

Meanwhile world cup-winner Jofra Archer could make his Test debut next week.

Moeen was omitted after a miserable first Test at Edgbaston, which England lost by 251 runs to go 1-0 down in the five-match series.

England already knew they would be without James Anderson, their all-time leading Test wicket-taker, after the Lancashire Paceman broke down with a calf injury after bowling just four overs at Edgbaston.

Fast bowler Olly Stone has been ruled out with a back injury.

the 12-man squad included: Joe Root captain, Rory Burns, Jason Roy, Joe Denly, Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, Stuart Broad, Jack Leach and Sam Curran.
