England Under-19 squad for the five-match Royal London one-day international series against South Africa Under-19s.
Will Rhodes (Yorkshire) (Capt)
Captained England to third place at the Under-19s World Cup earlier this year. A genuine all-rounder, he was England’s second-leading runscorer and wicket-taker at the tournament. Rhodes was given his Yorkshire debut in 2013 and went on to play nine limited-overs games that season.
Jonathan Tattersall (Yorkshire) (VCapt)
A top-order batsman, Tattersall was given his List A debut by Yorkshire in 2013. He was deputy to Rhodes at the World Cup this year and hit 95 in the group-stage defeat to Sri Lanka.
Tom Alsop (Hampshire)
Top-order batsman who is one of five players in the squad who was not a part of the Under-19s World Cup party. Impressed in the recent two-match youth Test series against South Africa, scoring 77 in the second match.
Ed Barnard (Worcestershire)
Barnard hit 93 as England opened the Under-19s World Cup with victory over United Arab Emirates. He was a regular for the team last year, striking a century against South Africa.
Karl Carver (Yorkshire)
The slow left-armer took the winning wicket on his first-class debut for Yorkshire earlier this season as they beat Warwickshire by an innings at Edgbaston.
Joe Clarke (Worcestershire)
A wicketkeeper-batsman who has become a regular part of the England Under-19s team. He hit a half-century in the first youth Test against South Africa in Cambridge earlier this month and can step up the pace, as shown with an unbeaten 81 from 64 balls against United Arab Emirates in Abu Dhabi last November.
Matthew Fisher (Yorkshire)
Seamer Fisher, who became the youngest post-war cricketer to play a competitive county game in 2013 aged just 15 years and 212 days, was England’s leading wicket-taker at the Under-19 World Cup. He took 10 scalps at 19.70.
Haseeb Hameed (Lancashire)
The 17-year-old right-hander recently hit a century for Lancashire's second XI against Glamorgan in a 50-over match at the SWALEC Stadium to prompt his selection after he was not a part of the World Cup squad.
Robert Jones (Lancashire)
A middle-order batsman who can bowl a few overs. He was a part of England’s squad for the Under-19 World Cup and has helped Cheshire push for a place in the Unicorns Championship final.
Saqib Mahmood (Lancashire)
Right-arm fast-medium bowler who was born in Birmingham and educated in Rochdale. He missed the World Cup squad but was called up for the second Youth Test against South Africa this month.
Josh Shaw (Yorkshire)
Right-arm seamer who can score runs down the order. He took five wickets at 21.60 at the Under-19 World Cup before taking a six-wicket haul against South Africa in the first Youth Test and hit 43.
Brad Taylor (Hampshire)
Off-spinner who has two first-class appaerances to his name. The most recent was in Hampshire's LV= County Championship draw away to Surrey in June when he removed former England wicketkeeper Steven Davies.
Luke Wood (Nottinghamshire)
Another bowler who has shown some promise with the bat. Wood is a left-armer who has been a fixture in Nottnighamshire's second XI this season, highlighted by grabbing a 10-wicket match haul against Warwickshire in July.
