The BCCI stated in a release that he had "aggravated a lower back condition" during the third ODI at Headingley and would be assessed by the team's medical staff before a decision on his inclusion was made.

Pacer Jasprit Bumrah, who was unfit for the ODI series, will be available for selection from the second Test onwards, the statement added. He was only roped in as a replacement for Sanju Samson, who had failed the Yo-Yo test.Pant made his presence felt with four fifties so far and with one more innings to go in the series, his inclusion has been seen as fitting reward for this young stroke player.

Yesterday, the squad for the five-match series was announced and Rohit Sharma was overlooked by the selectors. Rohit slammed two centuries in the white-ball format in England (one in T20Is & one in Tests).

The hard-hitting left-hander, who has played four T20 Internationals, is now playing the one-off unofficial Test against England Lions at Worcester.
