Sam Billings (Kent), Captain

Harry Brook (Yorkshire)

Sam Cook (Essex)

Sam Conners (Derbyshire)

Ben Duckett (Nottinghamshire)

Will Jacks (Surrey)

Keaton Jennings (Lancashire)

Dan Lawrence (Essex)

Mo Bobat, ECB Performance Director, said:

“We are delighted that the Lions will have a competitive fixture against the South African tourists. The squad strongly represents some of the country’s current, next best and future England players. For some players, this game will be important preparation going into the Test series.

“These matches for the Lions are pivotal as we try to build the depth of players that can further enhance the way the Test team have been playing this summer. It is a reward for players who have scored runs and taken wickets this season in the LV= Insurance County Championship campaign and have caught our eye in how they’ve gone about their business.

“I would also like to thank The Hundred teams and respective Head Coaches who have enabled the eight players who are playing in the competition the opportunity to play for the Lions. We are grateful for their support.”

England Men’s Assistant Coach Paul Collingwood has been appointed Head Coach for the match.

Tickets are now on sale from the match via the Kent CCC website.
