London: England has named South Africa-born Jade Dernbach in their 12-man squad for the second Test against Sri Lanka at Lords.

Dernbach, who replaces injured fast bowler James Anderson, is the sixth player of the squad who is not born in England, Fox Sports reports.

The 25-year-old fast bowler was born and educated in Johannesburg before debuting for England county Surry at the age of just 17.

The squad already had four South Africans (Andrew Strauss, Kevin Pietersen, Matt Prior and Jonathan Trott), and an Irishman (Eoin Morgan).
