Hamilton-Brown to lead England Under-19s
Rory Hamilton-Brown will captain England under-19's squad for their tour of Malaysia in January and February 2007. And Paul Farbrace, Kent Academy's Director, will be the coach for the tour, while England's regular coach, Andy Pick, is on a year sabbatical to coach Canada to the World Cup.
The month-long tour starts on 23 January and consists of two triangular one-day tournaments. The first is between England, Malaysia U-19 and Sri Lanka U-19 and the second between England, Malaysia U-19 and India U-19.
Tour manager John Abrahams was part of a four-person selection panel that included National Academy manager Peter Moores and England fast bowling coach Kevin Shine.
