Yorkshire batsman Jonathan Bairstow has revealed how delighted he was to help England A beat the West Indies and then hear that he had been called up to the Test side.
The 22-year-old has been given the chance to face West Indies in the first Test at Lord's on May 17 after it was revealed that Ravi Bopara would be out of action because of a thigh injury.
It is believed that Bairstow will go straight into the England side and is likely to bat at six after all-rounder Samit Patel was left out of the squad, despite playing on the recent tour of Sri Lanka.
"Brilliant day today! Great win and very proud of being included in the test squad!! Thanks for the messages everyone!!" Bairstow said on Twitter.
While Bairstow keeps wicket for Yorkshire he will be in the England side soley as a batsman and will be looking to make the same impact he has enjoyed in limited overs cricket.
He scored 41 not out on his one-day international debut against India, while a unbeaten 60 against Pakistan in a Twenty20 match in February announced his arrival.
