Tom Kohler-Cadmore is hoping he can make the most of what he describes as a surprise call-up to the England Lions squad for their four-day clash with Pakistan A in Abu Dhabi this weekend.

The Yorkshire batsman scored two half-centuries for the Lions in their summer one-day tri-series with the A teams of India and the West Indies.

And while he impressed significantly in his subsequent six County Championship appearances for Yorkshire, scoring two centuries in a haul of 414 runs, he admits to not expecting the call from the England selectors.

“I wasn’t expecting it,” he said.

“When I got the message, it was a bit of a surprise to be in both squads because I only played six Champo games, even though I played quite nicely in them.

“I’m really happy to be able to get a full trip because the longer you’re out here, the more you can learn and improve.”

Kohler-Cadmore, 24, was part of Yorkshire’s squad for last month’s Abu Dhabi T20 competition.

He returns to the United Arab Emirates, where the Lions play a four-day match, five one-day and two Twenty20 internationals.
