Dom, Jamie and Lewis all selected for England Lions

Somerset’s Dom Bess, Jamie Overton and Lewis Gregory have all been included in the England Lions squads for the tour to India across January and February 2019.

The trip will see the Lions play five 50-over matches and two A Tests.

It comes off the back of a series in the UAE, against Pakistan A, in which the hosts narrowly won the four-day and 50-over series and the Lions claimed the T20 leg.

Three players have earned their first call-up to the Lions: Lancashire’s Tom Bailey, and the Nottinghamshire duo of Matthew Carter and Zak Chappell.

Craig Overton misses out on selection as he continues to recover from a lower back injury that forced him to return home during the Lions tour of Abu Dhabi in November. Since being back at the Cooper Associates County Ground, he has undertaken an extensive rehabilitation programme and it has been decided between the ECB and SCCC that he will continue that in Taunton ahead of the 2019 season.
