Jason Roy and Craig Overton have been dropped from the England team for the fifth Ashes Test at The Oval, with Sam Curran and Chris Woakes coming in.

Ben Stokes, unfit to bowl because of a shoulder injury, will play as a specialist batsman.

Batsman Roy has been omitted after scoring only 110 runs in eight Ashes innings, with a highest score of 31.

Australia have retained the Ashes after victory at Old Trafford gave them an unassailable 2-1 lead in the series.
