England batsmen Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root have been made available to play for Yorkshire in Friday's T20 Blast match against Lancashire.

The duo helped England complete a Test series win over Sri Lanka on Monday.

Chris Woakes, who played in the second Test at Durham, and Jake Ball - who was included in the squad for the first two Tests - have also been made available.

They will be in contention to play for Birmingham Bears and Notts Outlaws respectively.

All-rounder Woakes can feature for the Bears against Durham at Edgbaston on Friday, while bowler Ball can play in two T20 games and a One-Day Cup fixture against Northants on 6 June.

Yorkshire lost their first T20 game of the season to Leicestershire on 27 May.
