Chris Tremlett and Graham Onions are recalled to the England side for the fourth Ashes Test that begins on Friday.

England have called up fast bowlers Chris Tremlett and Graham Onions for the fourth Ashes Test, which begins on Friday.

The duo replace James Taylor and Monty Panesar in the side as England look to add insult to injury having already retained the urn.

Heavy rain forced the umpires to abandon the third Test this afternoon, ensuring that it ended as a draw, which means that Australia can no longer win the series.

Tremlett has not played a Test match for England since the 3-0 tour defeat to Pakistan in January 2012, while Onions will be hoping to make an appearance at his home ground in Durham.

The duo were chosen ahead of Steven Finn, who has not featured since being dropped after the first Test.

Meanwhile, England have not called up any batting cover despite concerns over the fitness of Ian Bell.
