London, July 12: England have named an unchanged squad for the second Ashes Test at Lord’s against Australia, which starts from Thursday.

The Alastair Cook-led team thumped Australia by 169 runs on the fourth day of the first Test on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc is hoping to be fit for the selection after enduring an ankle injury in Cardiff.

Reflecting on Starc’s fitness, Australia physio Alex Kountouris said that he was in discomfort while bowling but has since improved significantly, the BBC reported.

Kountouris said that they would monitor him over the next few days but the plan is for him to take part in some light training, adding that they are hopeful he would be available for selection for the second Test. (ANI)
