Eye-catching selections in England Lions squad

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Jason Roy and Sam Billings have been named in the England Lions ‘Test’ squad to play Pakistan this winter.

The team will take part in one four-day ‘Test’ versus Pakistan A, as well as five A team ‘ODIs’ and two A Team ‘IT20s’ against the same opposition.

Kent captain Billings and Surrey batsman Roy – both regulars in England limited-overs squads – are joined in the four-day squad by Durham’s Mark Wood.

Worcestershire’s 20-year-old quick Josh Tongue joins Wood in the pace ranks, subject to medical clearance following an injury he picked up in the final Championship match of the season.

Billings, Roy, Tongue and Amar Virdi, the Surrey off-spinner, will swap out ahead of the white-ball leg of the tour, to be replaced by Alex Davies, Lewis Gregory, Sam Hain and Saqib Mahmood.
