Press release -

Ben Cox called up to England Lions squad for remaining 50-over matches

​Worcestershire wicketkeeper Ben Cox has been called up to the England Lions squad for the remaining four matches of the 50-over series in Australia to replace the injured Tom Moores.

Nottinghamshire’s Moores was injured during training on Sunday and, with the four matches being played in the space of eight days, the decision was made for him to return to England to recover.

The Lions will face Cricket Australia XI in two more limited-overs matches on the Gold Coast, having won the first match of the series on Sunday. They then travel to Sydney to play two matches against a New South Wales XI.
