England ponder personnel changes
England are considering resting the likes of James Anderson and Stuart Broad for the third Investec Test against the West Indies after wrapping up the series with a nine-wicket win at Trent Bridge.
Following victory at Lord's in the opening match, Andrew Strauss's side hold an unassailable 2-0 lead going into the concluding fixture at Edgbaston on June 7.
England would not ordinarily consider withdrawing key men at such an early stage of the summer, but with a packed schedule ahead of them, Strauss said: "We'll definitely think about changes."
A limited-overs series against the Windies is next, followed by a one-day series against Australia and a full tour by South Africa. After that comes the defence of the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka and four Tests in India.
After top-scoring with 45 in his side's successful chase of 108 on day four in Nottingham, the England captain added: "We've always viewed resting and rotating as something you have to do on a case-by-case basis so we'll speak to the seamers, see how they're feeling and see how we're looking for the rest of the summer.
"You always have to look quite a long way ahead when it comes to potentially resting someone. It's always a balance to strike because primarily you want to win every Test you play: that's the starting point.
"We'll have a conversation about it in the coming days."
In Steven Finn and Graham Onions, England have two high-class performers ready to step in at a moment's notice and England would appreciate to see the pair in Test action again.
But Strauss made sure to stop short of confirming England would make changes.
"It's a difficult situation and I certainly wouldn't want to nail my colours to the mast one way or the other," he said. "At this stage we have to sit down, think it through rationally and decide what the best course of action is, both for the Test match and for the long-term prospects of the team over the summer."
