England have named their 15-man squad for the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup in Australia next month.
 
A squad packed with first-class experience will be led by fast bowler Adam Ball of Kent.
Vice-captain Ben Foakes is one of three players from Essex, being joined by Reece Topley and Kishan Velani.
The squad was selected by the England Development Programme selectors, including David Graveney (EDP Head Selector), Tim Boon (Head Coach), John Abrahams and Iain Brunnschweiler
Graveney said: "The squad we have put together contains strength in depth and some exciting young talent which we look forward to seeing perform on the world stage in  Australia. It was difficult to reduce the squad from our original 30 names to just 15, but we feel we have a good mix of batting and bowling with strong names in reserve in case of any injuries."
Boon added: "The squad contains a great blend of players with first-class experience and those with less experience. We've got some great games to look forward to against top-class opposition at such a prestigious tournament. We're looking to giving them an opportunity to impress at this level and hope will we compete strongly throughout the competition."
England start their campaign against hosts Australia on August 11 with other group matches to come with Ireland and Namibia.
 
England ICC U19 Cricket World Cup squad:
 
Adam Ball, Ben Foakes, Shozair Ali, Daniel Bell-Drummond, Ben Collins, Alex Davies, Ben Duckett, Brett Hutton, Aneesh Kapil, Tom Knight, Craig Overton, Jamie Overton, Reece Topley, Kishan Velani, Sam Wood
