ADIL Rashid could feature for Yorkshire's Vitality Blast Roses clash with Lancashire after being omitted from England's squad for the Test against Ireland.

But it will depend on whether he is fit as the leg-spinner from Bradford needs a period of rest and rehabilitation due to his right shoulder injury which he nursed through the World Cup.

The Vikings host Lancashire in next week's encounter at Headingley on Thursday, one day after England start their Test at Lord's.

Rashid, who is battling with fellow spinners Moeen Ali and Jack Leach for an Ashes spot, was also left out of England's 16-man Ashes training squad this weekend at St George's Park.

The 31-year-old - a key member of England's World Cup winning squad - was controversially recalled to the Test team last summer against India, having opted out of playing for Yorkshire in the County Championship.

He went on top play all three Tests in England's 3-0 win in Sri Lanka, taking 12 wickets, though Ali and Leach both claimed 18.

Rashid was then wicketless in the first Test against West Indies in the new year before being allowed to leave the tour to be with his pregnant wife.

Yorkshire pair Jonny Bairstow and captain Joe Root are included in the squad to face Ireland, while Jason Roy is set to make his Test debut.

The Surrey opener and limited overs specialist was a star of the recent World Cup triumph and is to be given the platform to prove he can also deliver in Test cricket.

England's one-day international vice captain Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes - the hero of Sunday's victory over New Zealand - are rested ahead of the Ashes series which begins on August 1.

In a blow to hopes of toppling Australia, Mark Wood has been ruled out for four to six weeks with the left side strain sustained in the World Cup final.

Jofra Archer is also missing because of a side strain and will be given a period of rest before being considered for Ashes selection.

All-rounder Lewis Gregory makes his first appearance in a Test squad after producing several eye-catching performances for Somerset and England Lions.

Warwickshire pace bowler Olly Stone has overcome a back injury to make his second appearance in an England squad.

Although a 13-man squad has been selected England chairman of selectors Ed Smith confirmed Roy would make his debut against Ireland and said: "We have total confidence he will be able to adapt to red ball cricket."

On James Anderson's chances of being involved against Ireland, Smith added: "It's not clear. He's making good progress and, if he's fit to play without risk against Ireland, that's a possibility."

England squad to face Ireland: Joe Root (Yorkshire) captain, Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), Jimmy Anderson (Lancashire), Jonny Bairstow (Yorkshire), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), Rory Burns (Surrey), Sam Curran (Surrey), Joe Denly (Kent), Lewis Gregory (Somerset), Jack Leach (Somerset), Jason Roy (Surrey), Olly Stone (Warwickshire), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire).
