England Men’s Learning Disability team will travel to South Africa in November to compete in a tri-series against South Africa and Australia.
Captain Chris Edwards’s squad includes three uncapped players – Jaidev Charan and Benjamin Mason (both Middlesex) and Alfie Pyle from Sussex – as they seek to defend the trophy they won last time out in 2017.
