Wood picked up the injury at the end of the South Africa tour earlier this month and underwent scans in London, which confirmed a small tear to his left side.

Injuries have restricted Wood to 15 test appearances since his international debut in 2015, but he impressed in South Africa, claiming 12 wickets in two tests as England secured a 3-1 series win.

Wood also featured in all three games of England’s 2-1 T20I series win.

Lancashire seamer Saqib Mahmood will replace Wood in the squad for the two-test series, which begins in Galle on 19 March.
