Ollie Price named in England Lions squad for winter training camp

17 October 2023

Gloucestershire all-rounder Ollie Price has been selected in the England Lions squad for a winter training camp in UAE.

The 21-player squad, which features 10 players who are part of a Lions experience for the first time, will spend almost a month in the Middle East from November 16th to December 7th.

Shire's Ollie Price experienced a breakout season at Nevil Road in 2023, scoring 575 runs in the Metro Bank One Day Cup at an average of 82.14 and 763 runs in the County Championship, including three centuries and two half-centuries.

The Lions' trip to the UAE will offer England management the chance to understand the depth of England’s pathway whilst providing developmental experiences for high-potential players closely aligned to England’s future needs.

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.
