England have called up Surrey paceman Stuart Meaker as cover for James Anderson ahead of Sunday's second NatWest Series one-day international at the Kia Oval.

Anderson, the spearhead of Alastair Cook's attack, was troubled by a tight groin in yesterday's 15-run victory at Lord's, although he was still able to claim two key wickets.

Cook later confirmed the Lancashire seamer's fitness would be assessed and England have now opted to draft in Meaker, who made his international debut against India last winter and boasts two ODI caps, as a precaution.
