Craig to return to Somerset

Craig Overton has been replaced in the England Lions squad for the remainder of their A-team Tri-series against India and West Indies by Worcestershire’s Ed Barnard.

The Somerset all-rounder had been called away from the Lions for the first two matches of the Tri-Series to join England’s squad for the Royal London ODIs but he has picked up a side injury.

Craig was ruled out of today’s last match of the series at Emirates Old Trafford with side soreness,¬†and will now return to Somerset, with a scan due to take place on Monday.

The Lions, who have won their first two matches in the Tri-Series against India A and West Indies A, are practising at the National Cricket Performance Centre in Loughborough tomorrow before facing India for a second time at the Fischer County Ground, Leicester on Tuesday.

They then face West Indies A in Northampton on Thursday, needing one more win to guarantee their place in the Tri-Series final at the Kia Oval on Monday week (July 2).
