WORCESTERSHIRE all-rounder Aneesh Kapil has been included in the 15-man England Under 19 squad for next month’s tour of Australia where they will take on the host country, India and New Zealand in
a quadrangular one-day series.
Kent’s Adam Ball has been named as captain and the tour party features 13 members of the squad which recently completed a seven-match one-day series in Bangladesh.
England Development Programme head coach Tim Boon said: “This tournament will be a fantastic opportunity for all the players to gain experience of Australian conditions and test themselves against
quality opposition ahead of the ICC Under 19 World Cup – which will also be held in Australia later this summer.”
