Paul Best will remain as England Under-19 captain for the remainder of the limited-overs leg of Sri Lanka's visit. England bounced back from a heavy defeat to draw the Twenty20 matches 1-1, and now face Sri Lanka in five one-dayers, the first on Saturday at Fenner's, Cambridge.

There are two changes to England's squad for the series, with Adam Rouse returning from Hampshire duties to keep wicket and Surrey allrounder Zafar Ansari included in the squad for the first time.

"Sri Lanka is a very good side but we have shown over the course of the Test and Twenty20 series that we are more than capable of matching them and we are looking forward to a competitive One Day series," said coach Adrian Birrell.

England one-day squad: Paul Best (capt), Zafar Ansari, Adam Ball, Jacob Ball, Alex Barrow, Matthew Dunn, Lewis Gregory, Ateeq Javid, Jack Manuel, David Payne, Joe Root, Adam Rouse, James Thorpe, Luke Wells
