SIX Yorkshire players have been named in England’s 55-man training group for this summer’s internationals.

Among fourteen uncapped players named in the squad is Yorkshire batsman Tom Kohler-Cadmore, who has previously represented the England Lions.

Kohler-Cadmore, who joined Yorkshire in 2017 from Worcestershire, ranked behind only ex-England batsman Gary Ballance for runs scored in the Specsavers County Championship division one last year.

The 25-year-old scored 828 runs in 22 innings - an average of 39.42, with a high score of 165 not out against Warwickshire in September.

Kohler-Cadmore was also second only to Ballance for Yorkshire runs scored in List-A matches, while he topped the runs scored in Twenty20 matches.

Also named in the England squad from White Rose club are Test captain Joe Root, wicket-keeper/batsman Jonny Bairstow, spinner Adil Rashid, Yorkshire T20 captain David Willey and, new Yorkshire recruit, batsman Dawid Malan.

The expanded group will not be brought together in one place, with individual sessions at a host of county venues the only form of training currently approved, and does not represent an official England squad.Format-specific squads will be named at a later date.

ECB performance director Mo Bobat said: “It’s really pleasing to be in a position to have players returning to training and a huge amount of work has been done by many to get us this far.

“The pool of players will give selectors strong options when it comes to selecting squads across formats further down the line, as we move closer to our aim of playing international cricket this summer.”
