England have retained an unchanged squad for the last three matches of the NatWest Series against India.

The selectors opted against making any additions despite Ryan Sidebottom's ongoing injury problem.

Left-arm paceman Sidebottom is yet to feature in the series due to a side strain, and has already been ruled out of the fifth match at Headingley on Sunday.

Instead, he could play on the same day for Nottinghamshire in their Pro40 match against Lancashire, before a decision is made regarding his fitness for the final two games of the NatWest Series at the Oval (Sep 5) and Lord's (Sep 8).

Gloucestershire seamer Jon Lewis, who was called-up as cover for Sidebottom, remains with the squad, but will also be available to play county cricket should he not be required in the starting XI.

England lead the NatWest Series 2-1 going into Thursday's day-nighter at Old Trafford.
