England Head Coach Peter Moores plans to assess conditions at Lord’s before deciding whether or not to call on Simon Kerrigan.
Kerrigan has been named in a 14-man England squad for the second Investec Test but may still have to wait for a shot at redemption following his baptism of fire at the hands of Shane Watson and Australia.
“It’s pretty well known that we’re trying to identify who will be the spinner in the future and Simon has earned a chance to have a go,” said Moores.

“He had a tough debut but he’s worked incredibly hard to get to where he wants to be. He’s a very talented bowler and the surface will dictate whether or not he plays.”
Moores gave credit to his side for their efforts in the field in the drawn series opener at Trent Bridge.
“It was a tough toss to lose but we kept going and this morning showed the skill of the bowlers,” he said.
“It was good to have a highlight with Alastair Cook’s wicket and credit to the lads because we worked incredibly hard to create a situation at lunch where we still had a chance to force a win.”
