Essex bowler Tymal Mills in England squad for Bangladesh tour

ESSEX bowler Tymal Mills has been included in England Lions 16-man squad for the forthcoming tour of Bangladesh.

Nottinghamshire batsman James Taylor will lead the squad during the tour, takes place next month and consists of a five-match one-day series against Bangladesh A followed by a two match Twenty20 series also against Bangladesh A.

Mills, who plays his club cricket for Mildenhall in the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship, and the other members of the Lions squad were selected on the England Performance Programme in October.

They have spent the first part of the winter training at the National Cricket Performance Centre in Loughborough and are currently training in India and South Africa.

ECB Performance Director David Parsons said: “We have selected a young squad for this tour which is in line with our strategy of looking ahead to the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup and identifying and working with players who may be able to go on and play a role for England in the future.

“These players have worked extremely hard over the last couple of months with a strong focus on limited overs cricket. This tour presents a good opportunity for these players to continue to develop their skills in subcontinent conditions on what will no doubt be a challenging tour of Bangladesh as well as push for selection for future England squads.”
