The 31-year-old will be assessed at the end of the third Test match.

The Durham paceman, whose career has been blighted by injuries, adds to the growing list of unavailable England seam bowlers.

Stuart Broad, Jofra Archer, Olly Stone and Chris Woakes are out due to injury whilst all-rounder Ben Stokes is unavailable owing to a mental health break.

Wood's injury could force England to play Saqib Mahmood, who came in as cover for Broad.
