Jaydn Denly has been called up to England’s Youth ODI squad for the first time.

A 17-player squad has been selected for the England Men Under-19’s Quadrangular Youth ODI Series in India next month.

Durham batter Ben McKinney will again captain a squad that includes four new names – Denly, Charlie Allison, Seb Morgan, Haydon Mustard – from the group that played Australia U19s in the five-match home Youth ODI Series last month.

The Quadrangular Series is to be played in Vijayawada, India from 4-29 November and will feature India U19s A, India U19s B and Bangladesh U19s.

The series will provide the final competitive preparation for the Young Lions ahead of the 2024 ICC Under-19 Men’s World Cup, which will be staged in Colombo, Sri Lanka from 13 January – 4 February. Selection for the 2024 ICC Under-19s Men’s World Cup will be announced in December.

England Men Under-19’s Head Coach, Mike Yardy, said: “Touring India at any level is challenging, which why it is so valuable to be able to expose our best young players to these experiences at Under-19 level.

“We expect both the India and Bangladesh Under-19 teams to be very strong, as India showed when they beat us in the final of the most recent ICC Under-19 World Cup last year.

“So this is a huge opportunity for the 17 players who have been selected, especially with the next U19 World Cup following this tour in January 2024.”
