Ball named in Lions squad

Ball named in Lions squad

The Welbeck Wizard, Jake Ball, has been named in an 18-man England Lions squad that will go to a training camp in Dubai at the end of the year.

The 25-year-old from Warsop will join up with them in November after taking part in the senior side's one-day series in Bangladesh.

There will be three 50-over matches against the United Arab Emirates at the ICC Academy and a three-day match against Afghanistan in Sharjah.

“This squad is for the first half of our Lions programme this winter,” explained coach Andy Flower. “Firstly to build on some of the leadership work we did at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst last winter, which leads into a short camp at Loughborough, before we head out to Dubai later in November.

“We are taking 18 players because whereas last winter, and in our Tri-Series this summer, our focus was specifically on white-ball cricket, this year we will be working on both white-ball and red-ball skills.”
