Anderson replaces Broad in only change for second Sri Lanka Test

Broad has been rested after bowling brilliantly in the opening Test win in Galle, taking three first-innings wickets and then producing 13 maidens in seven second-innings overs.

England will name their squad for the first two Tests in India later on Thursday, with Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer (both rested), Rory Burns (paternity leave) and Ollie Pope (shoulder injury) due back.

England are viewing their Test winter in three two-match chunks: the tour of Sri Lanka, the first two matches in India, in Chennai, and the last two in India, in Ahmedabad.

It is expected that every all-format player will miss one chunk of fixtures, with Archer and Stokes the first to do so.
