Ballance is one of three changes to the squad that suffered a recent 5-2 series defeat in Sri Lanka.

Yorkshire's Jack Brooks, Liam Plunkett, Tim Bresnan, Adil Rashid and Jonny Bairstow, who were all named in England's preliminary 30-man squad, have not been selected.

Bikers bring festive joy to children's ward

A group of bikers are descending on Scunthorpe Hospital today to bring some Christmas cheer to children being cared for on the Disney ward.

Members of Scunny Bikers are delivering a bumper load of toys to the unit.

The annual event is aimed at bringing a bit of festive cheer to poorly patients at Christmas time. The bikers also organise an annual Easter egg run every year as well.

We are always extremely grateful to Scunny Bikers for their kind donations. It helps to bring a smile to our young patients' faces when we hand out the goodies.

– Sharon Vickers, Ward manager
