Rankin bolsters Lions ranks
Warwickshire pace bowler Boyd Rankin has today been called in to the England Lions squad ahead of the final one-day match against Sri Lanka A, following Steven Finn's inclusion in the fourth npower Test squad.
Rankin, 27, has spent the last two winters on the ECB's fast bowling programme and has taken 43 wickets for Warwickshire this season. He has yet to play for England Lions.
The final fixture in the three-match series, which is level at 1-1, takes place tomorrow at Northampton.
