Jaydn Denly in England U19 Test squad to face Australia

Tuesday 5th September 2023


Kent’s Jaydn Denly has been named in England U19s’ squad for this month’s two Youth Tests against Australia Under-19s.

The 17-year-old made his first team debut against Surrey in the Metro Bank One Day Cup this year, and so far has 78 runs & four wickets in five first-team List A appearances.

Captain Ben McKinney is one of four players who are retained from the squad that drew 1-1 with Australia U19s in two Youth Tests during the winter. McKinney’s fellow Durham team-mate Ross Whitfield and Hampshire duo Eddie Jack and Dominic Kelly were also part of the Test squad in Australia.

Young Lions Head Coach, Mike Yardy, said: “We are excited to play two competitive Under-19s Tests against Australia. After two high-quality games last winter in Australia, I expect the same, watching the best young players go head-to-head in red-ball cricket.”
