Will Jefferson has another chance to puthis name in the frame for an England tour place this winter after being namedin the England Lions squad to play the West Indies in a one-day warm-up matchnext week.
The 27-year-old impressed England coachPeter Moores as part of the A squad to tour Bangladesh in the New Year.
And after recovering from a hamstringinjury that delayed his Notts debut until Wednesday's victory over LancashireLightning in the Friends Provident Trophy, he's now been named in a 12-mansquad for the match at Worcester on Thursday.
Said Jefferson: "I'm delighted to have beennamed in the squad and can't wait to meet up with the guys who went toBangladesh in the winter.
"It's a nice turnaround for me after a hardcouple of months with the hamstring injury. I suppose that I might well havemissed out if I hadn't played on Wednesday and got some runs.
"What Peter Moores has shown since he tookover as England coach is that it's an open shop in terms of selection and he'snot afraid to bring in new faces.
"I know I need to be playing and scoringruns to stay in the system. My goal going into the season was to try and earnanother place with the Academy in the winter and if I can make a decent scorenext week, there could be some exciting opportunities ahead."
England Chairman of Selectors DavidGraveney said: "It's a great opportunity for the next-best to show what theycan do.
"The selectors will be closely monitoringperformances by the England Lions next week and it will provide a furtheropportunity for players on the fringe of the international side to press theircase for selection in our one-day squad for the NatWest Series."
