England Lions

Rob Key

Rob Key will lead England Lions against West Indies next week, having done so during the winter tour of New Zealand

The England and Wales Cricket Board today announced the England Lions team to play West Indies in a four-day match at Derby, starting on April 30.

England national selector Geoff Miller said: “This is a really exciting summer for cricket in England and Wales and the Lions matches are excellent opportunities for players to push for England places.

“The Lions squads feature players who display qualities that are capable of winning matches for England, so these games are very important.

“Rob Key captained outstandingly well in New Zealand and then took the reins in similar fashion for the MCC in the champion county match, so he will continue to lead for the match against West Indies.”
