Surrey batsman Will Jacks has been called up to England Lions squad for their upcoming tour of India.

Jacks, 20, is currently playing Grade cricket for Perth University in Australia, and will fly out to join the Lions party in time for their first warm up match in Thiruvananthapuram next Saturday, January 19th.

The tour will see the Lions play India A in five One Day Internationals, in January, and two four day Test Matches, which will take place in February.

Jacks joins a squad which also contains his Surrey team mates Ollie Pope, available for both formats, and Amar Virdi – who has just been selected for the Test element of the tour.
