England Learning Disability squad named for tour of Australia

Chris Edwards appeals for a wicket

Chris Edwards will lead a 15-man England Learning Disability squad on their tour of Australia, beginning on 28 September.

Between October 8-18, England will take on Australia in three One-Day Internationals and five IT20s, all taking place in Brisbane.

The IT20s form part of the INAS Global Games – world’s biggest sports event for athletes with an intellectual impairment.

Five players will be touring with an England squad for the first time – Jordyn Dore, Martin Henderson, Kieran McKinney, Andrew Mowatt and 16-year-old Kester Sainsbury. Edwards, meanwhile, is embarking on his fifth tour and third as captain.

England Learning Disability Head Coach, Derek Morgan, said: “We’re excited to be able to take a strong squad to Australia for the INAS Global Games.

“Matches against Australia always bring an added intensity and I’m sure both sides will be spurred on by the inspirational performances we saw in this summer’s Specsavers Ashes series.

“We’ve enjoyed good success in Australia in recent years and hope to continue that run on this tour.”

Ian Martin, ECB Head of Disability Cricket, said: “It’s great to have cricket as part of a global multi-sport event such as the INAS Games and we hope this will increase the exposure for our athletes and our sport.

“The Games are a great opportunity for our players to showcase their cricketing skills and also their values and behaviours as international athletes.

“We enjoyed a fantastic Physical Disability World Series on home soil this summer, where England finished runners-up and I can’t wait to see our Learning Disability squad put in equally inspirational performances next month.”
