WORCESTERSHIRE'S Adam Finch and Jack Haynes are in the Young Lions squad for the first half of the winter.

Paceman Finch and batsman Haynes will be in an 18-strong party for training camps in the United Kingdom and one for 20 days in Bangalore, India.

They will look to stake a claim for a new year tour involving matches against Bangladesh under 19s in all formats of the game.

Finch was part of the England squad with County team-mate Dillon Pennington for the ICC Under 19s World Cup in New Zealand last winter.

He made his under 19s debut against India in 2017 and also featured in 2018 against South Africa. Haynes, who scored his maiden second XI hundred against Nottinghamshire in 2018, also made his under 19s breakthrough against the Proteas.

Young Lions head coach Jon Lewis said: “It’s been hugely enjoyable this year to see Harry Brook, Will Jacks, Dillon and Ethan Bamber progress from representing us in last year’s World Cup to impressing in their county first XI.

“I know from having chatted to them that they felt their time with the Young Lions improved them as players and that’s an example of the value our pathway can add to young players.”
