Ben Green all set for ODI series with Australia
Somerset’s Ben Green is all set for the first of the five-match Under-19 one-day series against Australia that gets underway at South Northumberland CC in Gosforth on Tuesday.
The 17 year old Academy youngster has already hit three centuries this season, two for Devon and the third for Somerset Seconds, played a key role in ensuring that England drew their four day Test Match against Australia last week.
The second match in the ODI series is on Friday in Chesterfield after which the third game of the series is a day-night fixture at Derby which will be shown live on Sky Sports next Monday.
Game four is in Leicester before the series concludes on Saturday August 22 at Worcester – where Graeme Hick, Australia’s coach, should be assured of an especially warm welcome.
The full England squad is- Aneurin Donald (Glamorgan, capt), Ryan Davies (Kent, wk), Hugh Bernard (Kent), Jack Burnham (Durham), Ben Green (Somerset), Haseeb Hameed (Lancashire), Adam Hickey (Durham), Dan Lawrence (Essex), Saqib Mahmood (Lancashire), Brad Taylor (Hampshire), Callum Taylor (Essex), Aaron Thomason (Warwickshire), Jared Warner (Yorkshire), Saif Zaib (Northamptonshire)
