Gambhir is included in an 18-man squad, announced by the Board of Control for Cricket in India via its official Twitter feed on Wednesday, for the five-Test tour of England which starts in July.
While the opener is an eye-catching inclusion, veteran left-arm seamer Zaheer Khan is the most notable omission - having previously toured England on three occasions.
India squad (v England, July and August): MS Dhoni (Captain, wkt), M Vijay, S Dhawan, G Gambhir, C Pujara, V Kohli, A Rahane, R Sharma, R Jadeja, R Ashwin, B Kumar, M Shami, I Pandey, I Sharma, S Binny, V Aaron, W Saha, P Singh
