The England and Wales Cricket Board has announced a 14-man England Under-19s squad under the captaincy of Yorkshire’s Will Rhodes for the international Test series against South Africa U19s in early August.

England will begin with a two-day practice match versus a Yorkshire U19 XI at Sleaford CC on July 29 and 30, before the Test series begins at Fenner’s, Cambridge on August 1. The second Test match will start on August 7 at Northampton.

EDP Head Selector David Graveney said: “This is a great opportunity to continue the progress made through-out the winter and to play against the current U19 world champions. At this age-group level the sides tend to play more one-day cricket, so this is a real chance for both of the teams to hone their skills over the longer format of the game.

“Thanks must go to Yorkshire for helping us prepare for this series by providing an opposition for our practice game starting at Sleaford on July 29.”
