England Lions have called Boyd Rankin into the squad for Tuesday's final one-day match against Sri Lanka A after Steven Finn was included in the fourth npower Test squad.

The 27-year-old Londonderry-born bowler, who has spent the last two winters on the ECB's Fast Bowling Programme, has taken 43 wickets for Warwickshire this season.

Rankin played in Ireland's memorable win over England at the World Cup in Bangalore earlier this year.

Another Irishman, Eoin Morgan, is already established in England's senior side.

The final fixture in the series between England Lions and Sri Lanka A takes place at Northampton, with the scores currently level at 1-1.
