London: Nick Compton has been rewarded for his prolific start to the season with a recall to the Lions side for warm-up game against West Indians at Northampton.
Compton has not been involved in the England set-up since early 2007 but, after 685 first-class runs and three centuries in the first few weeks of the 2012 season, he has forced his way back into contention.
Compton is one of a 12-man squad named to face West Indies in a four-day fixture at Northampton commencing Thursday May 10.
22-year old James Taylor, lead the team, who moved to Nottinghamshire from Leicestershire over the winter.
The only player in the squad uncapped at Lions level is Kent allrounder Matt Coles,
