Pace bowlers Tim Bresnan and Graham Onions are both absent injured.
England lead the series 3-0 after a 74-run win in the fourth Test in Durham.`
Onions, 30, missed out on selection for the match on his home ground of Chester-le-Street then suffered a broken finger while playing for Durham.
Yorkshire's Bresnan, meanwhile, has a stress fracture of the back that will keep the 28-year-old out for the rest of the season.
