Mahmood set for England bow
The Lancashire paceman has been named in England's first warm up side against a New Zealand XI
Saqib Mahmood will make his non-competitive England debut in Sunday's first warm up game against a New Zealand XI at the Bert Sutcliffe Oval, Lincoln.
Chris Silverwood's side will play two fixtures before the IT20 series begins at the Hagley Oval next Friday.
And Mahmood has a chance to stake a claim for selection with a strong showing on Sunday.
The 22-year-old is one of four seam bowling options alongside Chris Jordan, Sam Curran and Pat Brown.
Matt Parkinson is one of four members from the 15-man squad to miss out but will likely get his chance to impress the England hierarchy in the following match on Tuesday.
