As if there isn`t enough International cricket this season, the ECB, in their wisdom?, have arranged 10 days cricket for the England Lions during June. Most of them while ALL 18 teams are playing CC cricket. So not only do we have 4 or 5 missing for the duration of the Champions Trophy we could be missing another 2 or 3 playing in meaningless Lions matches.

Crazy!!!

The dates

1/6
3/6
5/6 --- all 3 dates during the Yorkshire v Lancashire CC match at Headingley.

21/6 to 24/6 --- during the Middlesex v Yorkshire CC match at Lords.

29/6 to 1/7 --- during the Yorks v Surrey match at Headingley.

How many potential Lions do we have, based on recent form? Coad at a push and that is a long shot.

Brooks, Lyth, Lees, Fisher, Coad, Leaning.

All, apart from Coad, have been in recent MCC, England under-19's or England Lions squads, some as recently as last month.

Agree, on current form, probably only Coad, but you never know with "Team England".

I doubt we will have any selected. Leaning can't get a game for us when at full strength so unlikely to make the Lions.

We had no one involved with the lions in the winter
