Kasey and Lewis in England U19 squad for summer tri-series
Somerset Academy players Kasey Aldridge and Lewis Goldsworthy have been included the England U19s squad for the tri-series against India U19 and Bangladesh U19 which takes place in July and August.
The squad will be captained by Lancashire’s George Balderson and features players from 11 counties, all of whom will be available for selection for the ICC U19 World Cup in South Africa in early 2020.
England U19 Head Coach, Jon Lewis said: “We’re expecting a big test against India and Bangladesh this summer. They are two countries who are very strong at this level of cricket.
“We enjoyed a brilliant learning experience on tour to Bangladesh in the New Year, where our players were tested in some unfamiliar conditions, so it will be interesting to see if we can turn the tables on home soil.
“These fixtures are excellent for developing a player’s skills, experience and character. Some of the best young cricketers from the three countries will be battling against each other and these ‘best versus best’ experiences are what we feel give the players the greatest opportunity for learning whilst on the international pathway.”
