Somerset cricket duo selected in England squad ahead of the Ashes

Somerset cricket duo Lewis Gregory and Jack Leach have been called into the England squad for the Test with Ireland at Lord's which starts next Wednesday.

Gregory is named in the squad for the first time after impressing for both his county and in a recent match with England Lions.

Leach, who also played for the Lions against Australia A earlier this month, will be hoping to add to the four Test caps he has so far.

The Somerset pair have also been included in a pre-Ashes training camp this weekend, raising hopes that they could face Australia later in the summer.

As well as Gregory and Leach, former Somerset wicket-keeper Jos Buttler, one of England's World Cup heroes, is named in the training camp as well.
