Wood Replaces Anderson In England XI For 2nd Test

T20 World Cup: England has made a single change to their lineup for the second Test against the West Indies at Trent Bridge, recalling fast bowler Mark Wood to replace the recently retired James Anderson. The match is set to begin on Thursday.

Wood was unavailable for the first Test at Lord's as he had just returned from England's T20 World Cup campaign in the Caribbean. During the tournament, Wood took three wickets in five matches. Despite not playing a first-class match for Durham this season, his inclusion in the squad was confirmed after England's dominant innings-and-114-run victory at Lord's.

This selection marks a significant moment for England, as it will be the first home Test since 2012, and only the second since 2007, without either Anderson or Stuart Broad in the playing XI. Anderson was seen at Trent Bridge on Tuesday, taking up his new role as England's bowling coach following his farewell appearance at Lord's.
