    Alastair Cook is one of a clutch of Test players to have been selected to play against India A for the Lions on Monday

    England National Cricket Selectors have named an XI that will represent England Lions in a four-day match against India A starting on Monday, July 16 at Blackfinch New Road, Worcester.

    Over half of the side -Alastair Cook, Dawid Malan, Chris Woakes, Sam Curran, Dom Bess, Jack Leach - have represented their country at Test level.

    Warwickshire all-rounder Woakes will use the match as part of his rehabilitation from his injured right quad and knee.

    He is expected to return as a batsman in Warwickshire’s three-day second XI match against Leicestershire, starting on Tuesday, July 10 at Kibworth Cricket Club. He will then play a full part in the Lions’ match at Worcester.

    If selected in England’s third ODI at Headingley on Tuesday, July 17, Surrey’s Sam Curran will miss the Lions’ match and a replacement will be called up. The captain will be announced on the morning of the match.
