Kent and England Under-19 duo train with Alastair Cook

Tuesday 17th March 2015

Kent duo Hugh Bernard and Ryan Davies trained with England Test captain Alastair Cook ahead of the England Under-19s tour to Australia, starting next week.

Ahead of the tour, Cook helped with preparations as he led a batting session during a three-day England Development Programme (EDP) training camp at the National Cricket Performance Centre (NCPC) in Loughborough.

Commenting on the session, Alastair Cook said: “It’s been great to spend time with the England Under-19s before they go to Australia. It was interesting for me to see the next generation and see what level they are at. I’m pretty sure we will see a few England players from this group.

“It took me back to when I was an Under-19. Eleven or 12 years ago I was in the same boat, dreaming of playing professional cricket, so it was great to come back.”

Hampshire’s Joe Weatherley has been appointed as captain of the England Under-19s squad to play against Australia Under-19s in Western Australia next month.

During the month-long tour from March 25 to April 25, England U19s will play a five-match one-day series and one-off four-day match against Australia U19s, with all fixtures taking place in Western Australia. Australia U19s will subsequently visit England in August this year for a reciprocal tour, also consisting of five one-day matches and one four-day fixture.
