Stuart Meaker: Called up by England

Anderson, who was troubled by a tight groin in the first one-day international at Lord's on Friday, was expected to recover in time for Sunday's match at the Kia Oval.

But England decided to call in Meaker as a precaution. The Surrey seamer has played two ODIs for England, the last against India in Kolkata last October.

England lead the series 1-0.
