England v India: ECB name unchanged side for 4th Test

England v India: The hosts name an unchanged side for the fourth Test at Old Trafford on 7 August

By Sam Rogers

The ECB have announced an unchanged squad for the fourth Test match between England and India at Old Trafford starting on 7 August.

Following the home side’s emphatic 266 run victory to level the five match series, a decision was made to retain the 13 players already involved.

There is some concern for James Anderson who could miss the final two Test matches if the result of his impending hearing goes against him.

The visitors have troubles of their own as they continue to be without second Test hero Ishant Sharma who has once again been ruled out by injury.
