Jos Buttler to miss fourth Test

 

 

 

England cricket wicket-keeper Jos Buttler will miss the fourth Test against India starting on Thursday (2 September) because his wife is expecting their second child.

Jonny Bairstow, who played as a specialist batsman in the first three Tests, will keep wicket in his absence.

All-rounder Chris Woakes returns to a 15-man squad after a heel injury.

Pace bowler Mark Wood has recovered from the shoulder problem that kept him out of the innings-and-76-run win in the third Test on Saturday (28).

The hard-fought five-match series is now squared at 1-1.
