England and England Lions will lock horns in their first three-day warm-up match at Peter Burge Oval in Brisbane starting on November 23, Tuesday.
As part of their shadow tour, the England Lions are currently touring Australia for a four-day warm-up match against Australia A. Prior to that, the England Lions will give some practice to the England national side ahead of the much-awaited Ashes in a three-day warm-up game.
This match will also mark the return of England all-rounder Ben Stokes. The warm-up game will provide much-needed practice for Ben Stokes after he missed out on a vast amount of cricket due to personal reasons. Joe Root and Co. will be eager to take on the England Lions and correct their mistakes before the rivalry resumes.
