Cumbrian Ben Stokes today has been named in England's unchanged 12-man squad for the third Ashes Test against Australia at Headingley on Thursday.

All-rounder Stokes, from Cockermouth, will hope to impress again after scoring 115 not out in England's drawn second Test at Lord's, which came to a close yesterday.

James Anderson is making progress with his calf injury and will play for Lancashire's second XI in a three-day match, beginning tomorrow. England say the 37-year-old will be assessed "on an ongoing basis".

Anderson, who is England's leading Test wicket-taker, aggravated his calf injury during the first Test at Edgbaston, which Australia went on to win.

There is a longer gap between the third Test, which ends on August 26, and the fourth at Old Trafford beginning on September 4, which will give Anderson time to test his fitness.

But pace bowler Jofra Archer, who replaced Anderson at Lord's, impressed on debut with some hostile spells and speeds of up to 96mph.
