Dan Mousley has been included in a 21-player England Lions group to travel to the UAE for a training camp from November 16 to December 7.
The camp aims to understand the depth of England’s pathway whilst providing developmental experiences for high-potential players closely aligned to England’s future needs.
The group, which includes 10 players (George Balderson, Shoaib Bashir, James Coles, Josh De Caires, Tom Lawes, Mousley, Callum Parkinson, Rishi Patel, Ollie Price, John Turner) who are part of a Lions experience for the first time, will focus on developing their red-ball skills predominantly.
Selection for the camp was conducted in close collaboration with both players and counties, and several players not selected have been encouraged and supported to take up other opportunities overseas to support their individual needs.
While this may be Dan’s first taste of the Lions, he has England experience with the Under-19s side. The all-rounder scored 542 runs in 21 ODIs, including a century against Sri Lanka in the 2020 ICC Under-19s World Cup plate final, as well as one Test appearance.
For the Bears this year, the Nether Whitacre CC product impressed playing 33 times across the LV= Insurance County Championship and Vitality Blast. Still just 22, the left-handed bat scored 884 runs across both formats, plus 22 wickets in the shorter format.

England Men’s Performance Director, Mo Bobat, said: “At the end of an enjoyable season and after close dialogue with players and counties, it’s exciting to confirm our group that will travel to Abu Dhabi for a training camp later this year.
“The camp will provide an excellent opportunity for the players to develop their red ball game and allow us to learn more about them as people and players.
“In selecting the group, we’ve carefully considered England’s short and long-term needs in Test cricket, particularly with sub-continent challenges in mind.
“It’s quite a large group and it’s great that we can support player development in this way for what should be a fun camp.”
The coaching and mentoring group accompanying the party will be announced in due course.
