The ECB today announced the England Under-19 squad for the five-match one-day series against Sri Lanka, beginning on Saturday August 7 at Fenner's, Cambridge.

Paul Best will continue to captain the side, with two changes made to the squad that drew the Twenty20 series against Sri Lanka 1-1 earlier this week.

Adam Rouse returns as wicketkeeper with Surrey all-rounder Zafar Ansari included in the squad for the first time.

England U19 coach Adrian Birrell said: “Sri Lanka are a very good side but we have shown over the course of the Test and T20 series that we are more than capable of matching them and we are looking forward to a competitive one-day series.”
