Lawrence named in squad for England XI match in Perth


Essex batsman Dan Lawrence was today named in the England XI squad for their two-day warm-up match against a Cricket Australia XI.

Lawrence has impressed enough for the Lions during their Australia tour to be included in the side alongside five others from the Lions squad.

Moeen Ali will captain the side for the match which begins on Saturday at Richardson Park in Perth.

Ali is the only player from the 11 that played against Australia in Adelaide to feature in the match.

He is joined in the 12-man squad with the five players that did not play in Adelaide, plus Ben Duckett, Keaton Jennings, Jack Leach, Liam Livingstone and Mark Wood, who are now based in Perth at a training camp.
