Ollie Robinson has been recalled to the England side for the second Test against South Africa at the expense of Matthew Potts.

Robinson has not played for his country since the Ashes Test in Hobart in January, but he will back in the team at Old Trafford on Thursday.

The seamer has been sidelined by a back injury, while he also had to contend with a dental problem and COVID-19.

Robinson sent a message to the selectors by taking five wickets in the England Lions' hammering of South Africa in a tour match at Canterbury this month and he has got the nod over Potts in Manchester.

That is the only change to the team that was thrashed by an innings and 12 runs in the first Test at Lord's last week.

Struggling opening batter Zak Crawley will get another chance at the top of the order against a hostile Proteas attack.

England team: 

Zak Crawley , Alex Lees, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes (captain), Ben Foakes, Stuart Broad, Jack Leach,  Ollie Robinson, James Anderson.
