“It’s a genuine disgrace for Colin to experience this injury so right off the bat in the series,” Stead said. “He’s a huge piece of our Test side and we’ll unquestionably miss him.

“It’s perfect to have the option to approach somebody like Michael who’s been with the crew for as far back as month and is match prepared.” The second Test against England begins on Friday (June 10) at Trent Bridge.
