Rory Hamilton-Brown is back in contention for the England Under-19 side after being included in the 12-man squad for the second and final Test against Pakistan at Derby. But he was not considered for the captaincy, after being stripped of the role - and banned for the first Test - following a drinking incident on the eve of the match.

Whether Hamilton-Brown, who usually bats at three or four, will make the final XI this time remains to be seen with England crushing Pakistan in the opener, and all of the top four making runs.

Ben Wright will resume as captain for the second Test starts at Derby this Friday, August 10. He was one of three century-makers for England as they won by an innings and 58 runs at Scarborough.

The victory in the first Test against Pakistan was particularly encouraging as the team included nine players still eligible to play for the U-19 World Cup next year in Malaysia.
