Simon Jones has rejoined England's one-day squad after undergoing a week of intensive rehabilitation on his knee problem. Jones was released from the squad after England's opening match against Bangladesh, at The Oval, after suffering a sore right knee.

He has been working at the academy in Loughborough and has now been cleared to take his place again for the remaining matches of the tournament. This began with training at Headingley ahead of tomorrow's match against Bangladesh.

Chris Tremlett, the Hampshire seamer, joined the squad in Jones' absence and has performed well in the last two matches. He took 4 for 32, the second best figures by England player on one-day international debut, at Trent Bridge against Bangladesh, then took 1 for 53 against Australia at Durham.

The England selectors will make a decision over the weekend as to whether Tremlett will remain with the squad now that Jones is fit again.
