Jonny Bairstow has been handed his first Test call up after injured ruled Ravi Bopara out of the opening match against West Indies at Lord's starting on Thursday.

Bopara picked up a thigh injury during Essex's Championship clash with Kent and has suffered another setback in trying to relaunch his Test career.

Bairstow, who is a wicketkeeper-batsman but will not be required to have the gloves in the Test side, had gathered momentum in recent weeks after scoring two hundreds for Yorkshire this season.

Over a 50-match first-class career he is averaging 46.37 with a high score of 205.
