Warwickshire Academy graduate Jacob Bethell has been named in an 18-strong squad for the upcoming series between England U19 men’s team and the West Indies U19s.

It’s the first time the U19 team has been in action since the 2020 ICC U19 Cricket World Cup, and the squad, selected by the Young Lions selectors, will be led for the first time by ECB Elite Pathway Coach, Richard Dawson.

Dawson said: “I’m excited to see the group in action and to see how they fare against their international peers. 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.”

“Jacob Bethell and Tom Prest will share the captaincy throughout the series, which is a good opportunity for them to develop their leadership skills.”
