England Calls Onions Into Fourth-Test Squad as Chris Tremlett Is Injured

Graham Onions has been called into the England cricket squad for the fourth and final Test match against India after Chris Tremlett was ruled out with a back problem.

Another bowler, James Anderson, is not sure to play because of a leg injury. The game starts Aug. 18 at the Oval in London.

“We are hopeful that Jimmy will overcome this niggle by Thursday but more time is required before a decision on his availability can be made conclusively,” the England and Wales Cricket Board said on its website.

England leads the series 3-0, so guaranteeing the No. 1 place in the Test rankings.
