Bell given chance to roar for lions

April 22, 2009 at 11:59 am Leave a comment

Ian Bell was named in the England Lions squad for the game against the West Indies on April 30. The Warwickshire batsman has been given a chance to stake a claim for the England number three position ahead of the first test. Rob Key continues to captain the side and will be looking to push his claims further.

Ian Bell has started the season well for Warwickshire with the first hundred of the county season and then another in the Friends Provident. The selectors have decided to reward the efforts of the batsman with a place in the Lions Squad. He is joined in the squad by Tim Ambrose, who gets the nod ahead of James Foster. Uncapped Stephen Moore, Adil Rashid and Chris Woakes join a team of 8 who have previously represented England. Michael Vaughan has been left out but still has a chance to impress for Yorkshire.

England Lions team: Rob Key (Kent, capt), Tim Ambrose (Warwickshire, wkt), Ian Bell (Warwickshire), Sajid Mahmood (Lancashire), Stephen Moore (Worcestershire), Samit Patel (Nottinghamsire), Liam Plunkett (Durham), Adil Rashid (Yorkshire), Jonathan Trott (Warwickshire), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire), Luke Wright (Sussex)
