Mahmood added to Test squad

Mahmood added to Test squad

The fast bowler joins three Lancashire team mates in the squad as injury replacement for Mark Wood

Saqib Mahmood will travel to Sri Lanka for the upcoming two-match Test series after being called into the squad as replacement for Mark Wood.

The 23-year-old, who toured New Zealand in the red ball squad late last year, is aiming for a Test bow after making his international debut in both ODI and IT20 cricket this winter.

Durham paceman Wood has been ruled out with a left side strain.

Mahmood becomes the fourth Lancashire player to be included, with the first Test starting in Galle on 19 March.

He joins Keaton Jennings, Jos Buttler and Matt Parkinson in Chris Silverwood's squad, while James Anderson misses out as he recovers from a cracked rib.
