Chris Jordan has been recalled to the England team for the third Test against India at the Ageas Bowl.

The Sussex all-rounder was replaced by Ben Stokes for the opening two matches of the series but comes back into the side at the expense of the Durham player.

Jordan's return is one of three changes to the team which lost the second Test at Lord's.

Jos Buttler makes his debut in place of Sussex wicketkeeper Matt Prior who has decided to take a break from cricket for the rest of the season. The other change sees Chris Woakes replace Liam Plunkett.

Jordan is earning his third Test cap having played both matches in the series against Sri Lanka at the start of the summer.

The 25-year-old impressed the selectors with his performance in Sussex's victory over Warwickshire in the County Championship at Horsham this week.
