England Lions will play three one-day games in India after missing out on a place in the final of the Duleep Trophy.

They beat Central Zone in the first competitive match of the tour, but were then defeated by West Zone, who secured their place in the final of the Indian domestic competition.

However, the Lions are staying in India until February 24 to play three tour games against domestic sides.

Their first match is against Mumbai on February 19 at the Brabourne Stadium, with two further games against Maharashtra and Saurashtra on February 21 and 23.

Andrew Flintoff is set to appear in at least one game as he continues his rehabilitation from an ankle injury.

Full one-day international regulations will be in place, including the use of powerplays, in an effort to replicate the international stage.
