McKinney, Killeen, Whitfield receive England under-19 white ball call up

Ben McKinney, Mitchell Killeen and Ross Whitfield have been named in a 16-player England Men Under-19s squad for the upcoming Youth One-Day Internationals against Ireland and Australia.

The Durham Academy trio are named in the England squad for the series which gets underway on Monday 21st August against Ireland at Loughborough University.

Durham batter Ben McKinney will captain the squad after he led the Young Lions’ white-ball team in Australia last winter. England U19s will play Ireland U19s in two Youth ODIs before hosting Australia U19s in a five-match ODI series.

Ross Whitfield is also named in the 16 having been England’s leading run scorer during their Test series against Sri Lanka last summer with 261 runs averaging 65 following his top score of 110 at Chelmsford.

Young Lions Head Coach, Mike Yardy, said: “It’s an exciting six months for the Young Lions starting with a home series against Australia followed by a tour to India and a World Cup in January.

“We toured Australia last winter and it is great to be able for us to compete with them again this summer. There are several new faces in this squad which will add to that excitement in having the opportunity play against their peers from down under.”

England Men Under-19s squad: Ben McKinney (Durham, captain), Farhan Ahmed (Nottinghamshire), Tazeem Ali (Warwickshire), Charlie Barnard (Lancashire), Luc Benkenstein (Essex), Jack Carney (Lancashire), Keshana Fonseka (Lancashire), Henry Hurle (Glamorgan), Eddie Jack (Hampshire), Dom Kelly (Hampshire), Mitch Killeen (Durham), JT Langridge (Somerset), Henry Rogers (Sussex), Hamza Shaikh (Warwickshire), Noah Thain (Essex), Ross Whitfield (Durham).

The squad for the two Youth Tests against Australia U19s is set to be announced later this month.
