England recall Harmison

London, July 26:

England recalled Stephen Harmison to their 13-man squad for the third Test against South Africa starting at Edgbaston on Wednesday.

The Durham fast bowler has not played for England since being dropped following the first Test defeat away to New Zealand in March.

Australia-raised seamer Darren Pattinson, controversially awarded a Test debut in the second Test at Headingley, and Chris Tremlett have both been dropped.

England also recalled Paul Collingwood, dropped at Headingley where England’s top five batsmen managed just one fifty between them.

Left-arm quick Ryan Sidebottom returns to the squad after missing the second Test because of a back injury.
