England seamer James Anderson will miss the first Test against India next month as he continues his recovery from an injury to his right shoulder.
Anderson, England's record Test wicket-taker with 463 scalps in 119 matches, was ruled out of the forthcoming series against Bangladesh due to a recurrence of the problem which first flared up over the summer, when he sustained a stress fracture to the area.
His rehabilitation will now stretch into the India series, where he will be absent for the first Test in Rajkot, which gets under way on November 9.
England captain Alastair Cook announced the news, saying: "I don't think he'll be there for the start. He might be ready to do some training, but he won't be ready for the first Test match."
