Kent Cricket is delighted to announce that The County Ground, Beckenham will be hosting part of the U19 ODI tri-series between England, Bangladesh and 2018 Under-19 Cricket World Cup champions India.
England’s Under 19 squad, also known as the Young Lions, currently features Kent wicketkeeper-batsman Jordan Cox, as they prepare to tour Bangladesh later this month.
In the last two years, Kent batsman Ollie Robinson and Kent Cricket Academy scholar Tom Davies have also been involved in the set-up.
