Will Rhodes of Yorkshire will captain a 15-man England U-19 for the Under-19 World Cup in the UAE next month.
Rhodes, Nottingham born but educated in Hull, played nine limited-overs matches for Yorkshire last season as he was carefully integrated into the side. He has yet to make his Championship debut. He is one of four Yorkshire players in a squad that includes representatives from nine of the 18 first-class counties.
England's U19 side, which has had a thin time of late, will begin with a game against hosts UAE at the Zayed Cricket Stadium on February 14, before playing Sri Lanka and New Zealand in the other group stage matches in Dubai. If they progress further they could then go on to face one of fifteen other countries in the latter stages of the tournament.
David Graveney, head selector of the England Development Programme, said: "This squad contains an exciting mix of young talent which we look forward to seeing perform on the world stage against top class opposition.
Squad: Will Rhodes (Yorkshire, capt), Ed Barnard (Worcestershire), Joe Clark (Worcestershire), Ben Duckett (Northamptonshire), Harry Finch (Sussex), Matthew Fisher (Yorkshire), Miles Hammond (Gloucestershire), Ryan Higgins (Middlesex), Robert Jones (Lancashire), Robert Sayer (Leicestershire), Josh Shaw (Yorkshire), Dominic Sibley (Surrey), Jonathan Tattersall (Yorkshire), Jack Winslade (Surrey), Luke Wood (Nottinghamshire)
