Wisden Cricinfo staff

James Anderson has been ruled out of the second Test against New Zealand at Headingley which starts on Thursday.

Kent seamer Martin Saggers, who made his one Test appearance against Bangladesh last winter, has been called into the squad in his place.

Anderson is suffering from a bruised left heel which prevented him from practising properly at Leeds today.

England (revised squad): Michael Vaughan (capt), Marcus Trescothick, Andrew Strauss, Mark Butcher, Graham Thorpe, Paul Collingwood, Andrew Flintoff, Geraint Jones (wk), Ashley Giles, Martin Saggers, Matthew Hoggard, Stephen Harmison, Simon Jones.
