National selector Geoff Miller announced on Thursday a 15-man squad for the three Test series, with uncapped Warwickshire seamer Chris Woakes replacing Bresnan, who has been struggling with a right elbow problem for over a year.

Test squad: Alastair Cook (capt), James Anderson, Jonathan Bairstow, Ian Bell, Stuart Broad, Steven Finn, Graham Onions, Monty Panesar, Kevin Pietersen, Matt Prior (wkt), Joe Root, Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott, Chris Woakes
