WORCESTERSHIRE spinner Ben Sutton is in England's squad for the 2019 Physical Disability Cricket T20 World Series.

The competition will be held in Worcestershire over nine days this summer with the semis and final at Blackfinch New Road.

Royal Grammar School Worcester year 11 pupil Sutton, who also plays for Barnards Green, has been part of the County pathway programme since the age of 10.

Worcester's Old Elizabethans, Kidderminster, Bromsgrove and Barnt Green host the group games involving England, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Zimbabwe and Bangladesh.

Sutton has a tarsal coalition where the bones are fused in his left ankle and he only started playing disability cricket last year.

He said: “It is exciting to be in the squad and have the opportunity to represent my country.”

Worcestershire academy coach Elliot Wilson said: “He has been with us since under 10s and played in the full County side in various age groups as the leading spinner.

“We always knew he had the ankle condition and encouraged him 12 months ago to get involved with the physical disability side to see if he qualified and now he has been called up by England.”

England open their programme against Pakistan at Kidderminster's Chester Road on August 5.

The semis and final will be at Blackfinch New Road on August 13 and admission to all games is free.

In addition a Rest of the World XI will take on England at the County’s headquarters on August 15.
