England fast bowler Mark Wood has been ruled out of the third Test against India with a jarred right shoulder.
The 31-year-old sustained the injury on day four of the second Test at Lord’s as he dived to make a stop on the boundary and despite returning to bowl on the last day, the ECB has confirmed that he will not be fit to play at Emerald Headingley.
Wood will remain with Joe Root’s side in Leeds to continue his rehab with the England medical team and will be assessed again at the end of the Test match.
