ANI  |  Cricket 

England Cricket Board (ECB) on Friday named Jofra Archer and Jack Leach in the 12-man squad which will take on Australia for the second Ashes Test.

Leach scored 92 runs in England's one-off Test match against Ireland last month.

However, Moeen Ali, who displayed a poor form in the first Ashes Test, has been dropped.

James Anderson and Olly Stone also failed to find a spot in the squad as they are suffering from right calf and back injury respectively.

England faced a massive 251-run defeat in the first Ashes Test against Australia.

The second Ashes Test between England and Australia will commence from August 14 at Lord's.

Squad: Joe Root (capt), Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler (wk), Sam Curran, Joe Denly, Jack Leach, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes.
