Jennings and Dawson added to England squad

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Durham opener Keaton Jennings and Hamsphire Liam Dawson are to join the squad for the remaining two matches of the Test series in India.

Jennings, who is set to make his Lions (A side) debut against the United Arab Emirates in tomorrow, replaces Lancashire's Haseeb Hameed, who is to return home after fracturing a finger in the third Test defeat in Mohali.



Dawson, the Hampshire all-rounder, who was also selected for the Lions programme this winter before being released to play for Rangpur Riders in the BPL, has been called up to replace Surrey's Zafar Ansari, who is still struggling with the back injury he sustained in the second Test defeat in Visakhapatnam.

Ansari will stay with the squad and continue to receive medical support in before returning to on December 8.

Jennings, 24, made his Durham debut in 2012 and was the leading run-scorer in the 2016 Specsavers County Championship season with 1,548 at an average of 64.

He has been on the Lions programme for the last month, initially at the Performance Centre in Loughborough and for the last two weeks in Dubai, based at the ICC Academy.

He is due to join the squad in Mumbai on December 5 when they begin preparations for the fourth Test which starts at the Wankhede Stadium three days later.

Dawson, 26, made ODI and T20 debuts for last summer after impressing on last winter's Lions programme in the UAE. He is also expected to arrive in Mumbai early next week.
