joe Root has received another call-up for England Lions.

The Sheffield batsman will be in the Lions one-day squad for the three-match series against Sri Lanka A which begins at Worcester’s New Road tomorrow.

His inclusion means he replaces Ravi Bopara following his selection in the England side for the current Test match against India.

Root played against Sri Lanka A at Scarborough last week when he opened making 10 and then the side’s top score of 66 in the second innings.
