LONDON, England (CMC):

England have named an unchanged 13-man squad for the second Test against West Indies starting at Trent Bridge on Friday.

Chief selector Geoff Miller said he was pleased with the team's five-wicket win at Lord's in the opening Test which finished on Monday and was expecting the side to sustain their performance in the second match.

"There were some very impressive performances across all five days of the first Test, both from individuals and the team as a whole, and we were made to work hard for the first victory of the summer," Miller said.

"We know the West Indies will again prove challenging opposition and our squad will be looking forward to preparing for another tough match later this week."

England, led by Andrew Strauss, were scheduled to travel to Nottingham yesterday and will start their preparations today.

The final Test is scheduled for Birmingham from June 7-11.

SQUAD: Andrew Strauss (captain), James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow, Ian Bell, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Alastair Cook, Steven Finn, Graham Onions, Kevin Pietersen, Matt Prior, Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott.
