Ollie Robinson has been recalled to the England attack for Thursday’s second Test against South Africa.

He replaces Matthew Potts for his first appearance in seven months.

The Sussex seamer has not featured for his country since the final game of the Ashes in January due to a series of fitness problems, but has been given the nod at Emirates Old Trafford.

Robinson persuaded the selectors he was ready to go with a strong showing in the England Lions victory over the tourists in Chelmsford earlier this month, with Potts dropping out after struggling for rhythm in last week’s innings defeat at Lord’s.

That is the only change to the XI, with openers Zak Crawley and Alex Lees retained despite lacking major runs this summer.
