Tredwell is in

Calcutta: Off-spinner James Tredwell has been added to the England squad for the remaining two matches of the five-match series against Australia.

Graeme Swann is being rested for the final two fixtures to allow him an opportunity to overcome discomfort in his right elbow ahead of the crucial Test series against South Africa, which begins in a fortnight.

England selector Geoff Miller said that the selection committee had prior plans of utilising the fourth and fifth games as an opportunity to provide Swann a break.

“We had earmarked the fourth and fifth matches as an opportunity to rest Graeme as we have to consider our preparations for the Test series later this month.”
