Abell, Carse and Kohler-Cadmore stay in Australia for England Lions red-ball matches

Tom Abell is one of three players who will now stay in Australia for England Lions' red-ball leg

Tom Abell, Brydon Carse and Tom Kohler-Cadmore will stay in Australia for the England Lions’ three red-ball matches. The retained trio were all part of the one-day squad that went unbeaten in the three completed matches against CA XI and NSW XI.

The Lions play against a Cricket Australia XI in Hobart (15-18 Feb), have a day/night fixture versus Australia A at the MCG (22-25 Feb) and finish against a New South Wales XI in Wollongong (2-5 February).

Abell and Kohler-Cadmore are retained as batting cover with Dom Sibley, Zak Crawley and Keaton Jennings set to depart after the MCG match to join the England squad in Sri Lanka.

Carse is retained as cover for Saqib Mahmood, whose involvement in the IT20 series against South Africa will determine his availability for the final two matches of the Lions tour.

Spinner Dom Bess and captain Lewis Gregory also will leave the tour after the match in Melbourne. Bess will travel to Sri Lanka for the Test series, while Gregory has been signed to play in the Pakistan Super League by Peshawar Zalmi.
