The England selectors have today announced their 12-man squad to face Bangladesh A in their three one-day internationals in August.
The squad contains the likes of Boyd Rankin, James Taylor and Michael Carberry, and also includes three debutants.
And coach Ashley Giles, along with the selectors, have revealed that Sussex all-rounder Luke Wright will captain the side.
The side will also consist of a number of players who have represented England at a senior level across the different formats of the game.
National selector Geoff Miller said: "We are delighted to reward this Lions team with an opportunity to impress the selectors ahead of a number of forthcoming ODI series.
"It is a great chance for them to push for places in the England ODI games later this summer and also this coming winter.
"Looking further ahead, we are also keen to build a strong platform for the 2015 World Cup, so opportunities such as this play a big part in giving the coaches an opportunity to assess the levels of these players first hand."
