The Cloud County Ground to host England Under-19s in June


The Cloud County Ground will host England Under-19s’ first outing since the ICC Men’s Under-19 World Cup when they take on Sri Lanka on 28 June.

The Young Lions will host Sri Lanka in three Youth ODIs and two Youth Tests this summer, with the opening white-ball fixture to be played under the lights in Chelmsford.

Mike Yardy’s side will then head to The 1st Century County Ground in Hove for the final two Youth ODIs of the series.

Following that, the two-match Youth Test series will be staged at Wormsley and Cheltenham during July.

Head Coach Yardy said: “As always, it’s a great opportunity for our players to play against a quality international opposition and perform wearing an England shirt.”

Tickets are on sale now for the fixture at The Cloud County Ground, with Essex youngsters Charlie Allison, Luc Benkenstein, and Noah Thain all in contention to play.
