England name Lions Squad and Fixtures to play 4 ODI's in July 2016

England have named the following 12/13 man squad to play 4 ODI's in England later this month. It is normal for the Lions to tour during the winter so this is a new idea and will aid the younger players of overseas countries, as well as giving our own a mid season reminder that they are still on the selectors radar.

Dawid Malan (Captain)
Daniel Bell-Drummond
Ben Duckett
Joe Clarke
Brett D'Oliveria
Sam Billings
Liam Livingstone
Liam Dawson
Tom Curran
Jamie Overton (Back injury being monitored)
Saqib Mahmood
George Garton
Sam Curran (for final two fixtures) 
Mark Wood

The tri ODI mini series will give England 4 games

Tuesday 19th July 10.30am College Ground Cheltenham V Pakistan A

Thursday 21st July 2pm County Ground Northampton V Sri Lanka A

Sunday 24th July 10.30am Spitfire Ground Canterbury V Pakistan A

Monday 25th July 10.30am Spitfire Ground Canterbury V Sri Lanka A 

So quite a lot packed into just a week, I think perhaps another couple of players wouldn't be a bad idea myself.
