Dan Lawrence

Dan Lawrence out of England squad

England news

Uncapped batsman Dan Lawrence has left England's bio-secure bubble due to a family bereavement.

While the 23-year-old has not yet appeared for England, he remained with the squad throughout their three-match series against West Indies, and had stayed on as a reserve batsman for the first Test against Pakistan.

England confirmed that he would not be available for the second Pakistan Test, due to begin on Thursday, 13 August at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, and that they would not be bringing in a replacement for Lawrence in the squad.

Despite his age, Lawrence has a large amount of first-class experience, having made a total of 70 appearances in the format, most of them for his county side, Essex. In those games, he has scored 3804 runs at an average of 38.42, including 10 centuries.

With Ben Stokes also out for the remainder of the series, it appears inevitable that Zak Crawley will return to the playing XI for the second Test, having been left out to make room for an extra bowler after the second West Indies Test.
