Surrey pair Mark Stoneman and Ben Foakes have maintained their places in the England Test squad that will tour New Zealand in March.

The two have spent the last two months on the Ashes tour of Australia and, with the focus now temporarily turning to white ball cricket, will enjoy a short break before heading out to New Zealand, arriving on Friday March 9th.

Foakes has also been selected for the England Lions tour of the West Indies in February.

However, there is currently no spot for seam bowler Tom Curran, who was called up at the start of the tour as a replacement for the injured Steven Finn.
