Strauss called up to cover for Cook again

Andrew Strauss will join England's squad for the third one-day international against New Zealand on Saturday as Alastair Cook struggles to recover from a shoulder injury.

Cook has yet to feature in the one-day series after injuring his shoulder in the final Test against the Kiwis.

The Essex opener had an injection on Thursday but is still not fit to feature at Bristol so Strauss returns to the squad for the third time in as many matches as cover.

Cook will be assessed by medical staff on Monday with a view to playing at The Oval on Wednesday.
