The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) today announced a 15-man Physical Disability squad.

The England Physical Disability team will travel to Bangladesh in August to compete in the International Committee of the Red Cross International T20 Tournament for people with Physical Disabilities.

Hampshire's Alex Hammond who was named man of the series in his debut tournament in 2014 will be joined on tour by younger brother 19 year old Hugo, who also represents the county. The brothers will be the first to represent England’s Physical Disability team together.

The England squad captained by Iain Nairn includes six uncapped T20 players, Hampshire trio Josh Mead, Hugo Hammond and Dan Reynaldo, along with Drew White (Northumberland), Jamie Goodwin (Derbyshire) and Matt Askin (Shropshire).

We have a young, talented squad supported by a multi-disciplinary management team and we are looking forward to testing ourselves against the best physically disabled players from the sub-continent. This squad is yet another great example of cricket being a game for everyone.

Ian Martin, ECB's Head of Disability Cricket

The series, which will be staged in Dhaka, Bangladesh runs from 2nd to 10thSeptember, features four T20s against Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India and Pakistan.
