England have called up James Anderson as cover for Steven Finn ahead of the Twenty20 series with South Africa.

Finn has been suffering with a back problem recently and missed the defeat to the Proteas in the final one-day international at Trent Bridge on Wednesday.

Anderson will act as cover for his fellow bowler despite not playing a T20 match for England since 2009 and being left out of the squad for next month's World Cup.

It is unclear as to how great a part Finn will play in the series against South Africa, with three games taking place in the space of six days.

The first match is on Saturday at the Durham International Cricket Ground.
