Jack and Dom included in the England Lions Squad

Jack Leach will be joined by Haseeb Hameed, Ben Foakes, Sam Curran, Mason Crane, Jamie Porter and Toby Roland-Jones in the England Lions squad that will play three four-day matches against West Indies A in Jamaica and Antigua early next year.

Curran and Porter have also been selected in a 15-man squad for a three-match one-day series against West Indies A which follows in Antigua, along with Dom Bess and three more players who were not involved with the Lions in Australia – Hampshire all-rounder Liam Dawson, Kent batsman Sam Northeast and Lancashire leg-spinner Matthew Parkinson, who is currently in Sydney on an ECB Overseas Placement.

Keaton Jennings will captain the Lions in both the four-day and one-day series.
