Alastair Cook will miss England Lions' match against West Indies A today due to ongoing discomfort in his back.

He will continue to be assessed by the medical team and a decision will be made early this week regarding his involvement in the remaining fixtures of the Triangular series.

Andrew Gale will continue to captain the Lions in Cook's absence.
