“The clash with The Hundred finals stages means a number of players aren’t available for selection for this one-off fixture and, as such, steering the team towards an ECB Development XI, rather than an England pathway team, allows us more flexibility with selection,”. Bedbrook said.
He further said that this is an opportunity for younger players
“We have looked to involve a group of younger players who are all progressing within their regional teams and this game provides all selected with an opportunity to experience playing against senior international opposition,”. He further stated as per Ecb.co.uk.
. The match is going to take place at the Arundel Castle Cricket Club on Monday, August 28. However, the reason for the match is due to The Hundred League’ finals and an opportunity for the Development team.
