England call up Trott for Belfast

Andrew Trott
Andrew Trott is in the England squad to play Ireland at Stormont

Jonathan Trott has been called into the England squad as Andrew Flintoff's replacement for Thursday's One-Day International against Ireland.

Flintoff was withdrawn from the squad because he is to have surgery on his injured right knee on Monday.

Warwickshire's Trott scored a century on his Test debut at the Oval on Saturday as England beat Australia to clinch the Ashes.

Ireland pace bowler Boyd Rankin is a major doubt for the Stormont match.

The Warwickshire paceman picked up a groin strain in a game against Durham.

Peter Connell is the likely replacement if Rankin is ruled out.
