Uncapped leg-spinner Adil Rashid is the surprise inclusion in England’s 13-man squad for the first Investec Ashes Test in Cardiff next week.

The Yorkshireman was not a part of the 14-man training squad that travelled to Spain for four days as part of a bonding trip with new head coach Trevor Bayliss, which was widely viewed as an indicator of the squad the hosts would choose to take on Australia at SSE Swalec.

Seamers Mark Footitt and Liam Plunkett, who did travel to Almeria, miss out, with England including the full XI that played in both Tests against New Zealand earlier in the summer, plus Rashid and paceman Steven Finn.
