- Batsman preferred to Ollie Pope for President’s XI match
- Lawrence now expected to play in first Test against West Indies
Dan Lawrence appears poised to resume his Test career against West Indies in Antigua next week after being preferred to Ollie Pope in the rebooted England team that begins its solitary warm-up match on Tuesday.
Lawrence, the Essex right-hander, went unused during the 4-0 Ashes defeat but will bat at No 4, behind Joe Root, back at No 3, in a 12-man side that takes on the Cricket West Indies President’s XI over four days at the Coolidge Cricket Ground.
