England Under 19s take on Australia Under-19s at The 3aaa County Ground in the third Royal London One-Day International on Monday 17 August; 2pm start.

Entry is FREE for the fixture that is also being televised LIVE on Sky Sports. The second Royal London One-Day International at Queen’s Park was abandoned before a ball was bowled, with Australia leading 1-0 in the five-match series.

England have been boosted by the arrival of several new faces with Glamorgan’s Aneurin Donald taking over as captain from Lancashire’s Haseeb Hameed, who returns to the ranks after leading the team in last week’s drawn Youth Test.

Durham off-spinner Adam Hickey is included in the squad along with Jack Burnham who recently scored a half-century on his LV= County Championship debut for Durham versus Yorkshire at Scarborough,

Northamptonshire all-rounder Saif Zaib is named in the squad after breaking into the Northamptonshire first team in recent weeks, as is Lancashire seamer Saqib Mahmood who has shaken off a calf-strain injury.

Kent’s Hugh Bernard and Sussex bowler George Garton are included but Surrey’s Sam Curran is not included after becoming a key player for his county over the last two months.

England’s Under-19s are looking to bounce back from a heavy defeat by Australia in the opening match of the Royal London One-Day International series.

The tourists, who are managed by Australia cricket great Greg Chappell and coached by the former England and Worcestershire batsman Graeme Hick, romped to an eight-wicket win at South Northumberland CC in Gosforth on Monday.

England’s coach Andy Hurry is confident his team can and will improve on a poor opening performance as they aim to emulate their senior equivalents in the “Youth Ashes”.

“I’ve spoken to the squad and told them that was nowhere near a reflection of how they can perform,” said Hurry.

“We have to take responsibility for that and make sure we learn the lessons from that. The great thing about this series is it’s five games, and there is an opportunity for us to pick ourselves up and get straight back on the horse in the next game.”
