Former Scarborough batsman Adam Lyth has been included in a 14-man squad for a four day pre-Ashes training camp in Spain taking place from Saturday 27 June.

Lyth will be joined in the training squad by fellow Yorkshire players Gary Ballance, Liam Plunkett and Joe Root.

Andrew Strauss, Director of England cricket, said: “With Trevor Bayliss arriving in the country next Thursday, Trevor, Alastair and I felt it important that both players and management likely to be involved in the early stages of the Investec Ashes have chance to meet him and fully understand his approach prior to meeting up for the start of the Test series.

“With that in mind, we have arranged a preparation camp in Spain. This will involve a combination of physical and fielding sessions and planning meetings in an informal environment in order to provide the best possible lead up to the first Test in Cardiff.

“The squad for the first Test will be announced within a few of days of returning from the camp.”

Pre-Ashes training camp squad: Alastair Cook (Essex), Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), James Anderson (Lancashire), Gary Ballance (Yorkshire), Ian Bell (Warwickshire), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), Jos Buttler (Lancashire), Steven Finn (Middlesex), Mark Footitt (Derbyshire), Adam Lyth (Yorkshire), Liam Plunkett (Yorkshire), Joe Root (Yorkshire), Ben Stokes (Durham), Mark Wood (Durham)
