NEXT MATCH: Durham Cricket vs Sussex Sharks

James Coles selected for England U19 World Cup squad

Sussex's James Coles has been named in a 15-player England squad for the forthcoming ICC U19 Men's Cricket World Cup in the Caribbean.

The 17-year-old all-rounder impressed with the ball in the Young Lions' recent one-day series in Sri Lanka, conceding just over three runs per over in his three appearances. 

For next month's World Cup, England are in Group A alongside 2020 winners Bangladesh, Canada and United Arab Emirates.

Looking ahead to the tournament, Young Lions Head Coach Richard Dawson said: "It's always a hugely exciting moment for any young cricketer to be selected in a representative age-group squad, especially so when it's for a World Cup.

"We're really looking forward to getting out there and testing ourselves against the best young players in the world, and continuing our development as a side and as individuals."

Hampshire's Tom Prest has been selected as captain of the squad, with Warwickshire's Jacob Bethell vice-captain.
