Yorkshire batsman Joe Root and Lancashire left-arm spinner Simon Kerrigan have been called into the England Lions one-day squad to face Sri Lanka A in a three-match series beginning at Worcester on Friday.

Root replaces Ravi Bopara following the Essex man's inclusion in the England squad for the third npower Test against India.

The 20-year-old made his Lions debut in the recent four-day match against Sri Lanka A at Scarborough, making 66 in the second innings.

Kerrigan comes in for Hampshire's Danny Briggs, who has been ruled out of the series due to a shoulder injury.
