England have recalled off-spinner Dom Bess for the second Test against New Zealand at Edgbaston on Thursday.

He has taken 14 wickets for Yorkshire this season, at an average of 41.64.

The 23-year-old, who was dropped for the second and third Test in India over the winter, said in April he had spoken to captain Joe Root about how he was managed.

The former Somerset bowler, who has taken 36 wickets in 14 Tests, is the only change to England’s extended 16-man squad as they look to win the series after a draw in the opening Test at Lord’s.

Meanwhile, England have been fined 40% of their match fee for a slow over-rate in the first Test.

England squad for second Test: Joe Root (Yorkshire), James Anderson (Lancashire), Dom Bess (Yorkshire), Sam Billings (Kent), James Bracey (Gloucestershire), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), Rory Burns (Surrey), Zak Crawley (Kent), Haseeb Hameed (Nottinghamshire), Dan Lawrence (Essex), Jack Leach (Somerset), Craig Overton (Somerset), Ollie Pope (Surrey), Dom Sibley (Warwickshire), Olly Stone (Warwickshire), Mark Wood (Durham).
