The Test series between India and England is currently tied at 1-1. After the results of both the Test matches, the focus is on the third Test match, which will start from February 15 in Rajkot. The second Test played in Visakhapatnam ended on 5 February. In such a situation, both the teams are currently on a break. The England team took advantage of this break and got out of India. While the England players are enjoying these holidays, one of their team's batsmen took advantage of the opportunity and went to play in the T20 league. This player from England is Dan Lawrence.

After the conclusion of the Visakhapatnam Test, the English team reached Abu Dhabi the very next day, where its players are resting and recharging themselves for a few days. Here the team's batsman Dan Lawrence is also focusing on playing cricket instead of taking a break. This is the reason why ILT20, a T20 tournament played in the UAE, has teamed up with his team Desert Vipers.

Lawrence will play 2 matches

According to a report by ESPN-Cricinfo, the England cricket team management allowed Lawrence to play in the T20 league during this break. In such a situation, Lawrence will be able to play 2 more matches for the Vipers in the ILT20. Vipers coach Tom Moody was also happy with Lawrence's performance. Lawrence will feature in the matches on Friday February 9 and Sunday February 11 before rejoining the England squad. Lawrence was playing in this T20 league before being included in the England Test team but after just one match he got a call from England.

Haven't had a chance yet

Lawrence was initially not selected in the England squad. Then, after young batsman Harry Brook suddenly withdrew his name for personal reasons, Lawrence got a call from England. However, he has not played in both the Test matches played so far and has only sat on the bench. Currently, it seems difficult for him to play in the third Test as well as the English team is less likely to change his batting.
