Tom Westley reveals his determination to make an impact for the England Lions after being named in the Twenty20 squad.

Essex batsman Tom Westley has revealed his determination to make an impact in the England Lions squad when they meet Pakistan A in Dubai next month.

Westley has been named in the Twenty20 squad for the trip after an impressive season for Essex, but he insists that he will not be content to just be involved in the short tour.

"Obviously I'm very pleased. It's been a good couple of years and this is what I've been working towards," the 26-year-old told BBC Essex.

"It's nice to be recognised but the next step is to get into the final XI and to and put in big performances."

Westley scored 384 runs in the T20 Blast this year.
