Uncapped batsman <a href="http://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/dan-lawrence">Dan Lawrence</a> will no longer be a member of the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/england/">England</a> squad for this week's second Test against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/pakistan/">Pakistan</a> at Southampton following a family bereavement, team management announced Monday. <p></p> <p></p>The 23-year-old Essex rising star has been in the squad's bio-secure bubble during the past four matches. <p></p> <p></p>Lawrence had a slim chance of replacing <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ben-stokes/">Ben Stokes</a>, who is heading to New Zealand for personal reasons of his own. <p></p> <p></p>But Lawrence's withdrawal paves the way for Kent batsman Zak Crawley to return after two matches out of the Test side. <p></p> <p></p>England have said they will not call up any replacements for either Lawrence or Stokes. <p></p> <p></p>Star all-rounder Stokes, who played in England's three-wicket win in last week's first Test against Pakistan at Old Trafford, will miss the final two fixtures of a three-match series. <p></p> <p></p>His parents live in New Zealand, where Stokes was born before being brought up in England. <p></p> <p></p>Stokes's father Ged, a former New Zealand rugby league international, underwent three operations and spent 37 days in a Johannesburg hospital after being admitted in December while following his son during England's tour of South Africa. <p></p> <p></p>His condition was initially described as "critical" before it stabilised and he has since returned to New Zealand. <p></p> <p></p>England paceman James Anderson, speaking about Stokes' absence and before Lawrence's departure from the squad was announced, said earlier Monday: "It's a big blow for us because he (Stokes) is a big part of our team on the field and off it. <p></p> <p></p>"Obviously family comes first and we all rally around him and support him as best we can. <p></p> <p></p>"We've got two games left to play and we're confident with the guys we've got here, there's a lot of quality and whoever comes in we're sure will be fantastic."
