Eng vs NZ 2021 – Dom Bess added to England squad for Edgbaston Test against New Zealand



Yorkshire spinner called in as cover with Jack Leach in line for recall

England have added Dom Bess to their squad for the second LV= Insurance Test against New Zealand at Edgbaston.

Bess, the offspinning allrounder, has effectively been called-up to provide cover for Jack Leach. While Leach, England’s first-choice spinner, is understood to be fully fit, current Covid protocols render it complicated and time-consuming to bring players into the squad from county cricket.

Bess arrived in Birmingham on Sunday night, having taken four wickets earlier in the day to help Yorkshire to victory in their County Championship game against Sussex. After two days of managed isolation and testing, he will be free to train with the rest of the squad on Wednesday.
