Tredwell called into England squad
England have announced that the uncapped Kent off-spinner James Tredwell has been added to the Test squad for the tour of South Africa as cover for Graeme Swann, who has a side injury.
England team director Andy Flower said: “Graeme’s injury is improving and we expect him to be available for the first Test starting on Wednesday.
“But with a further three matches to come after Centurion we have decided that we need a ‘like-for-like’ replacement on hand for Graeme should this be required later in the tour.”
Tredwell, who was also called up to the one-day squad earlier during the tour, played for the England Performance Programme in their practice match against Nashua Titans last week, making 70 in the first innings.
