    Injury update – Tom Westley

    Tom Westley has undergone surgery on his injured finger.

    Tom Westley has had successful surgery in Leeds on the finger injury he sustained fielding for England Lions in their three-day match against a Queensland Select in Brisbane last week.

    The Essex batsman will be out for around 12 weeks, ruling him out of contention for the Lions’ tour of West Indies in early 2018.

    The squad for that tour will be announced later this month.

    The Lions are now in Perth for the second part of their training camp, focusing on white-ball skills and based at the Western Australia Cricket Association’s facilities at Murdoch University.

    They play a 50-over match against a WA selection on Wednesday (December 6) followed by a T20 game the following day, with both those games at Murdoch.

    Then they play three T20 matches which are part of Perth Scorchers’ preparations for the Big Bash on December 11, 13 and 15 – the first two of which will be the first cricket fixtures played at the new 55,000-capacity Perth Stadium, where the senior England team are due to play an ODI next January.
