7:00am Saturday 14th December 2013 in Sport
Hampshire’s James Vince has been included in a 15-man England Lions squad to face Sri Lanka A in February and March 2014. The call comes after Vince hit 69 for the England Performance Programme in this week’s victory against Western Australia 2nds.
Chris Woakes will captain a side that includes fellow players with Test experience in Jonny Bairstow, Simon Kerrigan and James Taylor. Middlesex batsman Sam Robson receives his first England Lions cap, whilst all other members of the squad have previously been capped for England Lions. England Lions will play five matches in Sri Lanka. After departing from the UK on January 27, the Lions will play two three-day matches against a Sri Lanka A Team Emerging Players XI in Colombo. The squad will then travel to Kandy for the first of three four-day matches against the Sri Lanka A team. A second match will follow in Dambulla before the squad return to Colombo for the final game of the tour. Lions squad: Chris Woakes (Warwickshire), Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), Jonny Bairstow (Yorkshire), Scott Borthwick (Durham), Varun Chopra (Warwickshire), Ben Foakes (Essex), James Harris (Middlesex), Chris Jordan (Sussex), Simon Kerrigan (Lancashire), Alex Lees (Yorkshire), Tymal Mills (Essex), James Overton (Somerset), Sam Robson (Middlesex), James Taylor (Nottinghamshire), James Vince (Hampshire).
