Record earns Dominic Sibley England Under-19s call-up


Surrey batsman Dominic Sibley has been rewarded for becoming the youngest double centurion in County Championship history with a place on the England Under-19s winter tour.

Sibley, 18, struck 242 against Yorkshire at The Kia Oval last month and he is one of 18 selected, for a tri-series against Pakistan and the UAE. The tourists will form the basis of the World Cup squad.
