Paul Collingwood and Stuart Broad will be rested for England’s first Test against Bangladesh at Lord’s on Thursday.

Collingwood, who captained England to ICC World Twenty20 glory against Australia last weekend, underwent scans on a shoulder injury and has been advised to allow for a period of treatment and recovery.

Andrew Strauss returns as captain of the 12-man squad and James Anderson has also been recalled.

Eoin Morgan, 23, Steven Finn, 21, and Ajmal Shahzad, 24, have all also been included in the squad, which was announced on Sunday.

“We were all delighted and extremely proud of the the way that squad performed at the ICC World Twenty20, their success is testament to a great deal of hard work,” said National Selector Geoff Miller.

“The focus now shifts back to the longer form of the game and we look forward to the first Test against Bangladesh.”

England squad in full: AJ Strauss (c) (Middlesex), JM Anderson (Lancashire), IR Bell (Warwickshire), TT Bresnan (Yorkshire), AN Cook (Essex), ST Finn (Middlesex), EJG Morgan (Middlesex), KP Pietersen (Hampshire), MJ Prior (wkt) (Sussex), A Shahzad (Yorkshire), GP Swann (Nottinghamshire), IJL Trott (Warwickshire).
