Graeme Swann is expected to play in the first Test against India despite returning to England to be with his ill daughter.
A statement from the England and Wales Cricket Board on Wednesday afternoon revealed that Swann had already returned home to be with his family. The 33-year-old spinner is, however, expected to return in time for the start of the four-Test series in Ahmedabad on November 15.
"Graeme Swann has returned home to support his family and spend time with his daughter who is currently unwell. Swann will return to India ahead of the first Test in Ahmedabad, commencing November 15," the statement read.
"This is a personal matter and we would ask for everyone to give Graeme and his family privacy. We will not be making any further comment at this time."
