London: England announced an unchanged 13-man squad for the second Test against the West Indies at Trent Bridge starting on Friday after a five-wicket win in the series opener at Lord's on Monday.

Fast-medium bowlers Graham Onions and Steven Finn were retained in addition to the XI who played at Lord's to give the world's number one-ranked Test side a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

"There were some very impressive performances across all five days of the first Test both from individuals and the team as a whole and we were made to work hard for the first victory of the summer," said England national selector Geoff Miller.
