JAMES VINCE will make his England Test debut when he faces Sri Lanka at Headingley.
The 25-year-old Hampshire captain, who has played one one-day international and three Twenty20s, will bat at number five tomorrow following James Taylor’s retirement with a heart problem.
England captain Alastair Cook, set to become the youngest player to score 10,000 Test runs, praised Vince.
He said: ‘The way he has come into the one-day squads and fitted in really well and handled what’s around him, he looks a really mature guy and ready to play Test cricket.’
Cook, 31, needs just 36 runs to break Indian Sachin Tendulkar’s record.
