Moeen Ali was left out of the England squad for the second Ashes Test against Australia and is now "recharging" rather than immediately returning to action with Worcestershire.

However, captain Joe Root insists the all-rounder will be back in an England shirt soon enough.

Moeen endured a tough start to the Ashes series as he took three wickets for 172 runs while scoring just four with the bat in a 251-run England defeat at Edgbaston.

Who's crying now? Australian glee as cricketers rise from Ashes

Who's crying now? Australian glee as cricketers rise from Ashes Australians basked in rediscovered pride in their cricketers Tuesday after Steve Smith inspired a thumping Ashes Test win over England.

Moeen Ali has been dropped by England ahead of the second Ashes Test against Australia at Lord's, with Jack Leach and Jofra Archer coming in. Somerset's Leach – who scored 92 as nightwatchman in a warm-up Test against Ireland – has been drafted into the 12-man squad as Moeen 's replacement.

Moeen Ali has requested a break from Test cricket after being dropped from the England team and losing his all-format central contract. It was revealed at the time Moeen would look to spend some time " recharging " before making his county return for Worcestershire.

And just as at the Cricket World Cup, where Moeen missed the final four matches – all wins – in England's triumph, he has been dropped from the team.

Rather than return to play for his county, though, Worcestershire confirmed on Tuesday that Moeen will first take some time out.

The county side's coach Alex Gidman said: "Mo is spending a little time away from the middle, recharging his batteries and putting in some quality practice time, which he feels he needs and we completely respect.

"He has had an intense schedule of international cricket involving the ICC World Cup and the start of the Ashes.

"Mo loves playing for Worcestershire and he gives a lift to everyone in the dressing room when he comes back and plays for us.

Legend's radical solution to England's Ashes woes

Legend's radical solution to England's Ashes woes Former Australian captain Ian Chappell has proposed a left-field fix for England ahead of the second Test at Lord's.

England have not lost a home Ashes series since 2001 and have not lost a series to any touring side since 2014. All-rounder Ben Stokes will be assessed over his fitness to bowl after struggling with a shoulder problem. If Stokes is unable to bowl he is expected to play as a specialist batsman, with

England all-rounder Moeen Ali is taking a short break from all forms of cricket after being omitted from the squad to face Australia in the second Ashes Test at Lord’s this week. Moeen contributed just four runs in the opening Test defeat at Edgbaston and offered neither control nor a consistent threat with

"We saw at Trent Bridge [in the Vitality Blast win over Notts Outlaws last month] what he gives to us and we look forward to when he returns soon."

England skipper Root added in a news conference: "I spent a good while chatting to Mo, making sure he understood where we're at in terms of getting him back to his best.

"[England want him to] go and play some county cricket and performing well for Worcester, as he proved last time around, coming into the India series and having a massive influence on it.

"There's no reason why he can't do the same again and force his way back into the squad. He's been a big part of English cricket. He's done some fantastic things in a Test shirt and it's certainly not the last we'll see of him.

"He's a fine cricketer, he's a great man and he gives so much to this team. I'm sure it won't be long before you see him back involved."
