SOMERSET QUARTET NAMED IN ENGLAND YOUNG LIONS SQUAD


SOMERSET’S Tom Lammonby, Kasey Aldridge, Lewis Goldsworthy and Will Smeed have all been named in the Young Lions squad for their upcoming tour of Bangladesh.

Lammonby has been selected to captain the side in the Test matches, while Surrey’s Jamie Smith will be in charge for the T20 and ODIs.

The Young Lions will compete in all formats across the tour, with one T20, three ODIs and two Test matches.

Head coach Jon Lewis said: “As is always the case for any trip to the subcontinent we’re expecting an extremely tough trip.

“Bangladesh are a force to reckoned with in their own conditions, as we’ve seen from when our senior side have travelled there. The subcontinent is always tricky, and we expect it to be incredibly hard.

“However I’m very pleased with this group. We worked very hard before Christmas during our training camp in India and I’m really looking forward to seeing how the players adapt to the conditions and to what they can learn from this trip as they continue their journey.”
