Brian Murgatroyd, the England and Wales Cricket Board's media relations officer, is leaving to take up an identical position in Australia. He will succeed Patrick Keane next month as the Australian Cricket Board's media manager.

England have made two changes for the first two Under-19 Test matches with Australia later this month, with the Essex wicketkeeper James Foster and Ian Hunter, a seamer from Durham, introduced. The pair were not selected for the one-day series against Australia, which England lost 2-1, but come into the 12-man squad at the expense of Giles Haywood, of Sussex, and Glamorgan's Mark Wallace. Durham's Michael Gough continues as captain for the three-Test series.

Isa Guha, from High Wycombe, is set to become the first girl to represent her county, Buckinghamshire, in the regional rounds of the Sun Life of Canada U-15 Trophy next week. The 14-year-old is a right-arm medium pace bowler and is already playing for Thames Valley women's senior county side and Ridgeway first XI in ECB South Division One.
