The 25-year-old has suffered a back injury and will be returning home to consult with a spinal surgeon, according to England Cricket. 

Middle-order batter Maia Bouchier and left-arm spinner Kirstie Gordon have been added to the Test squad, stated ECB.

“Emma Lamb has been withdrawn from the England Women Test squad to play India due to a back problem. Lamb has returned home to the UK where she will see a spinal surgeon to determine next steps,” ECB said in a statement.
