James Taylor To
Captain England Lions

Featured News | 16th December 2011

Nottinghamshire batsman James Taylor will captain England Lions during their tour of Bangladesh in January.

Alex Hales has also been selected for the tour which  consists of a five match one day series followed by a two match Twenty20 series against Bangladesh A.

All 16 members of the Lions squad were selected on the England Performance Programme in October and have spent the first part of the winter training at the National Cricket Performance Centre in Loughborough and are currently training in India and South Africa.

“We have selected a young squad for this tour which is in line with our strategy of looking ahead to the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup and identifying and working with players who may be able to go on and play a role for England in the future,” said ECB Performance Director David Parsons.

“These players have worked extremely hard over the last couple of months with a strong focus on limited overs cricket. This tour presents a good opportunity for these players to continue to develop their skills in subcontinent conditions on what will no doubt be a challenging tour of Bangladesh as well as push for selection for future England squads.”
