Yorkshire's Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow have been included in England's squad for the 1st Test against Sri Lanka, which starts at their home ground Headingley a week today.

Root and Bairstow are in prime form. Earlier this week they shared in a record fourth wicket partnership of 372 as Yorkshire beat Surrey at Headingley.

But there's no place in the 12 man squad for Adil Rashid, Gary Ballance or Liam Plunkett.
