SOMERSET TRIO NAMED IN ENGLAND LIONS SQUAD FOR TRIP TO INDIA


SOMERSET players Dom Bess, Lewis Gregory and Jamie Overton have been named in the England Lions squad 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.

Fellow Somerset player 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.
