After much thought and consideration, Warwickshire batter Dom Sibley has made the decision not to tour Australia with the England Lions.
Sibley has decided to spend the winter working on his batting at home in a bid to regain England selection.
The touring party – which includes Bears batter Rob Yates – will depart on the 4 November along with the Test specialists selected in the Ashes squad.
The Lions will be in camp alongside the England Ashes squad and will play two intra-squad matches (1 x 3-day and 1 x 4-day matches) in Queensland.
They will also take on Australia A in a four-day match. Dates and venues are still to be confirmed. The party will return home on 16 December.
