Uncapped batsman Dan Lawrence has left the England bio-secure bubble because of a family bereavement and will not be available for the second Pakistan Test.

The 23-year-old was among the reserve players for this summer's Test series against West Indies and Pakistan.

The second Test of the Pakistan series, which England lead 1-0, starts on Thursday at the Ageas Bowl.

England all-rounder Ben Stokes will play no part in the rest of the series for family reasons.

All England matches this summer are being played behind closed doors and in a bio-secure environment because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Once players leave the bubble, they must self-isolate and be tested twice before returning.
