Stuart Broad has kept his place in England's Test squad while Tim Bresnan has been recalled ahead of Steven Finn for the opening match against India, at Lord's, on July 21.
Broad's match haul of 6 for 162 against Somerset, which included 5 for 95 in the first innings, was enough to spare him the axe following his demotion from the one-day side for the final match against Sri Lanka at Old Trafford. Reports from the game at Trent Bridge, where he had a tough contest with Marcus Trescothick, were that he was finding his rhythm again.
Andrew Strauss and Andy Flower are big supporters of what Broad brings to the team - despite just eight wickets in the Tests against Sri Lanka - but the decision to drop him last week has shaken up the pecking order even though Broad is Twenty20 captain. Having retained his place in the squad he still faces pressure for his place in the final XI from Bresnan who played a vital role in the Ashes series at Melbourne and Sydney.
