Kerrigan gets England start

Simon Kerrigan has become Lancashire's newest Test Match player when he was selected to start the 5th Investec Ashes Test at the Kia Oval today.

Kerrigan takes his place in the starting line-up in a line-up showing two changes from the 4th Test. Tim Bresnan is missing due to injury, with Jonny Bairstow also missing out. Kerrigan is joined in the side along with fellow debutant Chris Woakes.

It's the culmination of a great season for the left-arm spinner, who received his county cap last month, and gives the 24-year-old a great chance of touring Australia for this winter's Ashes series.
