Chris Woakes has been named in the team for the Second Investec Test against West Indies at Headingley.
Woakes, who sustained a side strain on 1 June, has been recalled in place of Toby Roland-Jones.
Woakes took five wickets and scored 53 in his first game back for Warwickshire earlier this month.
"Toby unfortunately misses out," said Root.
"He's not done a lot wrong - he's taken his opportunities, played some fantastic cricket and I see him being a massive part of our future, but it's a great chance for Chris to come back and show his class."

Joe Root (Yorkshire, captain)
