All-rounder Ben Stokes too is a part of the squad.

The selectors could have gone back to Moeen Ali, who was dropped for the final Test against New Zealand, but he hasn't played any first-class cricket since due to being at the IPL.

Jos Buttler has been in a rich vein of form in the IPL this year, scoring five back-to-back fifties for the Royals at the top of the order.

But he also repeatedly got out when well-set and the 40-year-old Smith, who played three Tests for England in 2003, remains among those yet to be convinced by Vince.

England wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler, who made his last Test appearance during the fifth match against India in Chennai in December 2016, has been recalled to the national squad.

England's spin role had become vacant after Jack Leach, Bess' Somerset team-mate, suffered a broken thumb in the nets on Monday and was ruled out for a month.

But he starred for MCC in the Champion County match against Essex in March where he took eight wickets in the match and scored a century in a victory over the county Champions in Barbados. He has not played a first-class match since September.

Dom Bess was close to speechless when Ed Smith interrupted his morning trip round Ikea to tell him he was in line for a Lord's Test debut against Pakistan next week. He has impressed everyone with his performances for Somerset and England representative teams. The selection panel feels that this is the flawless moment to reintroduce Jos to Test cricket, where he has already enjoyed some success, including a stint playing as a specialist batsman at number seven. We felt that a player of his unique gifts - as a destructive batsman, fantastic competitive presence, dynamic athlete, someone who has leadership skills innate in him, who is playing with such confidence and flair - this was the right time'.

"Dom's strong form, character and all-round abilities presented a compelling case for selection", Smith said.

Joe Root (c), James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Dom Bess, Stuart Broad, Jos Buttler, Alastair Cook, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Mark Stoneman, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.
