England called James Taylor into the squad for the third Ashes cricket Test against Australia as cover for batsman Kevin Pietersen, who’s trying to get over a calf strain.
Bowlers Monty Panesar and Chris Tremlett return to a 14-man group at the expense of Steven Finn and Graham Onions. The match starts Aug. 1 at Old Trafford, Manchester.
