Due to the rain in Manchester, England were unable to train outside and practised in the indoor nets at Emirates Old Trafford ahead of the #raisethebat second Test against the West Indies starting on Thursday 16 July 2020.
The National Selectors have made three changes to the squad. Lancashire seamer James Anderson and Durham quick Mark Wood are both rested.
Surrey left-arm seamer Sam Curran is added to the squad alongside Sussex seamer Ollie Robinson, who gets his first call-up to the senior squad. England captain Joe Root returns to the squad, with Kent batsman Joe Denly missing out.
Lancashire seamer Saqib Mahmood left the Test party after the first Test and will join up with England’s white-ball training group on Thursday at the Ageas Bowl ahead of the Royal London Series against Ireland starting later this month.
