Archie Vaughan will be joining a squad of promising young cricketers, including Rocky Flintoff and Farhan Ahmed. The 18-year-old has been named in a 14-member squad featuring familiar family names including Flintoff, Farhan Ahmed, and Jaydn Denly. Vaughan has already made an impact at the age group level.

He scored 85 runs from 83 balls for a Young Lions Invitational Xl in a warm-up match against the England U-19 ODI squad. Vaughan and Flintoff have played alongside each other in 48 Tests between 1999 and 2008. Now their sons could begin their partnership at the age-group level in two tests at Wormsley starting on July 08-11.

Hamza Shaikh will be captaining the side, which played two youth tests against Australia last year and is set to play against the touring West Indians in a Test warm-up at Beckenham this week.

“They’ve helped me and given me more confidence in my leadership on and off the field, advising on bowling options and field placements,” told Shaikh.

“I like to think I’m a fairly calm guy and captaincy doesn’t faze me. I’m looking forward to the challenge and hopefully coming away with a series win.” The team will also feature several players who have been part of the ODI squad in the Sri Lanka U-19 tour of England, including Kesh Fonseka, Noah Thain, and Freddie McCann.
