England Under-19s

The U-19 squad has been announced for the two Test matches against Pakistan in early August. A few familiar county names in the squad to keep an eye out for:

Rory Hamilton-Brown - Surrey
Billy Godleman - Middlesex
Alex Wakely - Northants
Tom Westley - Essex
Ben Wright - Glamorgan
Adam Lyth - Yorkshire
Ben Brown - Sussex
James Harris - Glamorgan
Liam Dawson - Hampshire
Stuart Meaker - Surrey
Chris Woakes - Warwickshire
Steven Finn - Middlesex

First game was meant to be at Worcester starting on August 4th but this will obviously change. 5 ODIs after the Test series too.

Anyone know any more about the players?

I think Rory Hamilton-Brown is supposed to be an all-rounder. Having a double barrelled name obviously makes him an ideal captain. I think he's played for Surrey a few times, but to no great effect.

Godleman is a very highly thought of batsman who's been playing for Middlesex this season. He seems to have been opening the batting and occupying the crease but not making many good scores. I think he's probably the one tipped for greatest things out of this lot.

Wakely looked like he had a good debut the other week. Is he a genuine all-rounder?

Westley is highly thought of at Essex, who have a good track record with producing England u19 batsmen in recent years. He hasn't scored the runs expected of him at 2nd XI cricket yet, but they will come.

Ben Wright I think has played for Glamorgan a couple of times as a batsman, and obviously we all know about James Harris following his sensational start to first class cricket. To be leading the attack aged 17 is quite something.

I think Finn is supposed to be a tall seamer, but don't know any more about him. Is Lyth the Yorkshire wicketkeeper that some people were raving about last year?

Can anyone else expand and fill in the gaps?

Who are going to be the England full-team prospects?

Liam Dawson is a spinning all-rounder (I think left-arm?) who is very highly rated at Hampshire. I think he's still only 17 so he could well be in the under-19 side for the next couple of years.

Wakely came in above Klusener and bowled 13 overs last week at Taunton so he should probably be considered a genuine all-rounder too - perhaps second spinner to Dawson.

Finn is very tall - you can definitely class him in the Tremlett range.

Don't know anything about Brown, Meaker or Woakes.

I'm not sure if Wakely is a genuine all-rounder as he said he was surprised by the wickets he took, but he looks like he could certainly develop into a decent part timer.

Woakes is a tall quick who has ideas of being an allrounder and has aleardy made his first class debut at 17. He is the rated youngster in the Warwicks system. Ive seen him in the seconds and he looks an excellent prospect.

Where is Sam Northeast?

Lyth is a middle order player. The "Yorkshire wicketkeeper that some people were raving about last year" was Greg Wood, who captained the U-19s on tour over winter, yet hasn't been picked for this team. No idea why (Ben Brown is the keeper).

Oh, and Northeast is in the Under-17 team, presumably captaining them.

Ah that's the fella, Rey. Thanks also GG, Kim and JD. I never fail to be impressed by how much people know about cricket on here.

Ben Brown hit 46 off 25 balls on his debut against Sri Lanka A last week. He's the latest in the line of wicket-keeper batsmen we seem to be churning out

Which is today Wakely and Godleman have made a good start, 109-0 at a fairly slow rate

Couldn't find any news on the Eng U-17 v Pak U-19 games on the ECB website. Quick google found this Pak-centred report

Quote:
LONDON, Aug 02 (APP): The touring Pakistan Under-19 cricketers had the better of their English counterparts in the two warm-up matches prior to Saturday’s first Test in the northern coastal city of Scarborough.
The Pakistanis were pitted against England Under-17 in matches played at Loughborough and Salford in English Midlands.

In their first two-day game, the visitors scored a six-wicket win after achieving a target of 134 in 23 overs. The opposition was restricted to 179 in 60 overs and the visitors responded with 261 with vice-captain Shan Masood making a fine 112 and Umar Amin 66. Batting second time, the home team made 215. Opener Ahmad Shahzad scored unbeaten 66 to guide his team to a comfortable win.
The two-day match at Salford ended in a draw. The Pakistani youngsters scored 257 in 60 overs with Taimur Ali making top score of 87 followed by Gulraiz Sadaf with 70. The visitors then dismissed their opponents for a meagre 110 with pace bowlers Mohammad Aamer and Junaid Khan taking four and three wickets respectively.
In their second knock, the tourists made 182 for 9 in which Taimur contributed 36 and Shahzad 40. Facing a huge task of 330 for victory in 69 overs, the English boys were 154 for 3 when the match ended.

Good first day for England U-19's. 351 for 2. Surprised to see that Harris is playing for the England U-19's. Rashid was excused because playing county championship cricket was of a higher standard. I know that Glamorgan aren't great at the moment but are they really saying that U-19s is better than playing for Glamorgan?

The basis for Yorkshire's argument was that he'd already played cricket for the A team.

Great knock from Alex Wakely for 112. No mention of it on here either. I suppose it wouldve been different if he played for Lancashire
