Worcestershire duo Ed Barnard and Joe Clarke have been included in the England Under-19 squad for the two Test series against South Africa later this summer.

The England and Wales Cricket Board today announced a 14-man England squad under the captaincy of Yorkshire’s Will Rhodes.

Batsman Barnard and Clarke were both part of the squad which participated in the World Cup during the winter.

They are currently playing for the Second Eleven and have signed full-time contracts for the 2015 season with the county.

England will stage a two-day practice match against a Yorkshire Under-19 XI at Sleaford CC on July 29 and 30 before the Test series begins at Fenners on August 1.

The second Test match will get underway on August 7 at Northampton.
