Sussex star Ollie Robinson will lead the new-ball attack for England.

He will move up the pecking order for the second Test of the series against India, starting today.

Robinson returns to Lord’s, scene of his bitter-sweet Test debut versus New Zealand earlier this season.

He has been thrust on to the frontline by injury problems for the hosts.

England are preparing to line-up in a home Test without James Anderson or Stuart Broad for the first time in more than nine years.

Broad has been ruled out of the rest of the five-match LV= Insurance Series after pulling up injured in a warm-up session.

An MRI scan in London yesterday lunchtime revealed a tear to Broad’s right calf.

Meanwhile 39-year-old Anderson complained of a tight quad on the eve of the match and it is highly unlikely that any risks will be taken with his longer-term fitness.

England were already missing Sussex paceman Jofra Archer, who is a long-term absentee with an elbow injury.

Robinson will now take new-ball duties, with Mark Wood recalled and Craig Overton vying with the late call-up Saqib Mahmood for the remaining spot.
