Bess, meanwhile, was given the nod after fellow Somerset spinner Jack Leach was ruled out of the upcoming series due to a broken left thumb.
While Stokes hasn't been at his absolute best in IPL 11 but Buttler has unarguably been the team's best batsman and has been the man behind team's recent resurgence.
"The selection panel feels that this is the flawless moment to reintroduce Jos to test cricket, where he has already enjoyed some success, including a stint playing as a specialist batsman at number seven", Smith added.
Dom Bess was close to speechless when Ed Smith interrupted his morning trip round Ikea to tell him he was in line for a Lord's Test debut against Pakistan next week.
Bess has taken 63 wickets in 16 first-class games at an average of just more than 22. He has impressed everyone with his performances for Somerset and when he has been given opportunities with England representative teams. "Dom's strong form, character and all-round abilities presented a compelling case for selection".
But he starred for MCC in the Champion County match against Essex in March where he took eight wickets in the match and scored a century in a victory over the county Champions in Barbados.
