Uncapped Simon Kerrigan and Chris Woakes have been named in the England squad for the fifth Ashes Cricket Test against Australia which starts at The Oval on Wednesday.

Warwickshire all-rounder Woakes, 24, has played 13 one-day international and two Twenty20s, while left-arm spinner Kerrigan, also 24, has taken 48 first-class wickets this season.

Pace bowlers Tim Bresnan and Graham Onions are both absent injured.

England lead the series 3-0 after a 74-run win in the fourth Test in Durham.`

Onions, 30, missed out on selection for the match on his home ground of Chester-le-Street then suffered a broken finger while playing for Durham.

Yorkshire's Bresnan, meanwhile, has a stress fracture of the back that will keep the 28-year-old out for the rest of the season.
