With cricket, England will not change what is working right
England have named an unchanged squad for the fourth Test against India, sticking with the 13 players who claimed the world No 1 Test ranking from the tourists.
Ravi Bopara retains his place as Jonathan Trott continues his recovery from a shoulder injury.
"Trott is making steady progress in his rehabilitation from his ongoing shoulder injury, but he requires further treatment and won't be fit for the fourth and final Test match," Geoff Miller, the national selector, said in a statement. Miller added that Chris Tremlett, the fast bowler, is available for selection following treatment for a back injury.
England thrashed India by an innings and 242 runs in the third Test in Birmingham on Saturday.
"The performance at Edgbaston was of the highest quality," Miller said. "But the team will now refocus on finishing the series in a strong manner with much still to play for."
Elsewhere, Brian Vitori claimed his second successive five-wicket haul as Zimbabwe bowled Bangladesh out for 188 in the second one-day international at Harare.
Having taken five wickets on his debut as his side won the first match of this five-game series, the left-arm seamer repeated the feat Sunday with figures of five for 20 from 9.3 overs. It means, in two games, Vitori has equalled the Zimbabwean record for five-wicket hauls in ODIs.
Zimbabwe then scored 191 for three to win the match by seven wickets with 35 ball to spare.
