James Anderson ruled out of England's first Test against Pakistan through injury

London: England's premier pacer James Anderson was ruled out of the first Test against Pakistan due to injury.

All-time leading wicket-taker for England, Anderson, failed to recover on time from his right shoulder injury. He sustained the injury during the third Test against Sri Lanka, a month back.

In a press conference at Lord's England skipper confirmed the news. "Jimmy has been touch and go for a while, he is making really good progress but it is the selectors' view that he just won't be quite ready for that first Test, hopefully for the second." 

The 33-year-old, fast bowler was replaced by uncapped seamer Toby Roland-Jones.

England squad:

Alastair Cook (Essex, capt), Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), Jonny Bairstow (Yorkshire, wkt), Gary Ballance (Yorkshire), Jake Ball (Nottinghamshire), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), Steven Finn (Middlesex), Alex Hales (Nottinghamshire), Joe Root (Yorkshire), Toby Roland-Jones (Middlesex), James Vince (Hampshire), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire).
