Cummins in U19 World Cup fold
The 16 partaking countries have revealed their preliminary squads for the International Cricket Council Under-19 World Cup, with Australia’s Pat Cummins among the notable inclusions.
An express paceman, Cummins shone on his solitary Test appearance to date, claiming 6-79 in the second innings as South Africa were toppled in Johannesburg.
The 19-year-old has since been struggling with a stress fracture in his foot, yet will likely feature in the age-group showpiece after representing Australia’s seniors in the NatWest Series versus England.
There are other notable names in the line-ups, including Kraigg Brathwaite - who has featured nine five-day encounters for West Indies - and Daniel Bell-Drummond, England’s most prolific batsman in U19 cricket.
England’s 30 includes the 15 players that took part in April’s Quadrangular Series in Australia.
