Warwickshire allrounder will split captaincy duties with Hampshire batter Tom Prest
England’s Under-19s have not played since they won the plate at the World Cup in January-February 2020 and this series will be their first under Richard Dawson, who was appointed as the ECB’s elite performance pathway coach earlier this year.
“I’m excited to see the group in action and to see how they fare against their international peers,” Dawson said. “It’s a big opportunity for the players, and it’s their first step on the international pathway.
“It’s testament to the quality of our young players that we may lose a few during the series, should they be called into their county’s first-team squad. We’ll be communicating and collaborating with the counties throughout and we’ve selected a group to cover that eventuality, and we’re looking forward to getting going.”
England Under-19s squad: Jacob Bethell, Tom Prest (captains), Rehan Ahmed, Tom Aspinwall, Sonny Baker, Nathan Barnwell, George Bell, Josh Boyden, James Coles, Alex Horton, Dan Ibrahim, Archie Lenham, Will Luxton, Harry Petrie, James Rew, James Sales, Fateh Singh, George Thomas
