Led by ODI captain Eoin Morgan, England will train once again at the Desert Springs resort in Almeria in southern Spain.

England used the venue for a team-building trip back in May 2015 – with it being the first act of then new coach Trevor Bayliss.

The experience of warm weather training away from the UK worked wonders for the Three Lions two years ago as they went onto claim a 3-2 Ashes victory over Australia later that summer.

It is expected that slip and ground fielding will be the dominant focus for England on Spanish shores as they gear up to face South Africa in three one-day international clashes later this month before their ICC Champions Trophy opener against Bangladesh on Thursday June 1.

2017 is shaping up to be England’s busiest domestic summer ever with seven Tests, 10 ODIs and four T20s against South Africa and West Indies combined, as well as the Champions Trophy.
