    Root names team for Headingley Test

    England captain Joe Root has revealed his starting XI for the Second Investec Test against West Indies

    Chris Woakes has been named in the team for the Second Investec Test against West Indies at Headingley.

    Woakes, who sustained a side strain on 1 June, has been recalled in place of Toby Roland-Jones.

    Woakes took five wickets and scored 53 in his first game back for Warwickshire earlier this month.

    "Toby unfortunately misses out," said Root.

    "He's not done a lot wrong - he's taken his opportunities, played some fantastic cricket and I see him being a massive part of our future, but it's a great chance for Chris to come back and show his class."

    England team for second Test against West Indies:

    Joe Root (Yorkshire, captain)

    Moeen Ali (Worcestershire)

    James Anderson (Lancashire)

    Jonathan Bairstow (Yorkshire)

    Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire)

    Alastair Cook (Essex)

    Dawid Malan (Middlesex)

    Ben Stokes (Durham)

    Mark Stoneman (Surrey)

    Tom Westley (Essex)

    Chris Woakes (Warwickshire)
