With Jofra Archer and Jos Buttler unavailable, Chris Woakes and Stuart Broad will fight for Archer’s spot with Ben Foakes coming in as wicketkeeper in place of Buttler.

Talking to the press ahead of the 2nd Test, Root said it was a difficult decision to leave out Bess. “He has taken that on board and I am sure he will be disappointed, but that is what you expect from players who really care," said Root.
