Four Nottinghamshire players, two of them homegrown graduates of the club’s Academy, have been selected to feature in a County Select XI against India.
Lyndon James and Liam Patterson-White are joined by Haseeb Hameed and Zak Chappell in the squad of 14 announced by the ECB today to face the touring side at Emirates Riverside starting on Tuesday 20 July.
The match will be played behind closed doors and will form part of India’s warm-up schedule ahead of the LV= Insurance Test Series.
The squad was selected after consulting with the first-class counties on player availability and to provide some of the high potential talent from across the county game with the opportunity to test themselves against the ICC World Test Championship finalists.
The team will be captained by Warwickshire’s Will Rhodes and coached by Young Lions Head Coach Richard Dawson.
The county players will bridge into a team environment and undergo Covid testing before being cleared to play in the match.
County Select XI squad: Will Rhodes (Warwickshire - captain), Rehan Ahmed (Leicestershire), Tom Aspinwall (Lancashire), Ethan Bamber (Middlesex), James Bracey (Gloucestershire), Jack Carson (Sussex), Zak Chappell (Nottinghamshire), Haseeb Hameed (Nottinghamshire), Lyndon James (Nottinghamshire), Jake Libby (Worcestershire), Craig Miles (Warwickshire), Liam Patterson-White (Nottinghamshire), James Rew (Somerset), Rob Yates (Warwickshire).
