Kent's Adam Ball will lead England Under-19s in their quadrangular ODI series in Australia in April, as part of the team's preparations for this summer's Under-19 World Cup. England have named a 15-man squad to take on hosts Australia, India and New Zealand on the two-week tour.
The party features 13 members of the squad that recently visited Bangladesh for a seven-match one-day series, which they lost 5-2. Essex bowler Reece Topley and Leicestershire batsman Shiv Thakor are the two players added to the group.
England Development Programme head coach Tim Boon said: "This tournament will be a fantastic opportunity for all the players to gain experience of Australian conditions and test themselves against quality opposition ahead of the ICC's Under 19 World Cup - which will also be held in Australia later this summer."
England U-19 squad: Adam Ball (capt, Kent), Mo Abid (Lancashire), Shozair Ali (Warwickshire), Daniel Bell-Drummond (Kent), Ben Foakes (Essex), Brett Hutton (Nottinghamshire), Aneesh Kapil (Worcestershire), Sam Kelsall (Nottinghamshire), Jack Leaning (Yorkshire), Craig Overton (Somerset), Jamie Overton (Somerset), Rammy Singh (Durham), Shiv Thakor (Leicestershire), Reece Topley (Essex), Sam Wood (Nottinghamshire)
