Hampshire’s Brad Taylor is playing for England Under-19s today after getting a late call-up for the Test series against South Africa.

The 17 year-old off-spinner has joined Hampshire teammate Tom Alsop, who made his first-team debut in yesterday's defeat to Gloucestershire, in today's team for the first of the two Tests at Fenner’s.

Taylor, who became Hampshire's youngest first-team player since 1867 last season, was called into the squad following an injury to Leicestershire’s Rob Sayer and the selectors’ decision to release Ryan Higgins back to Middlesex for their forthcoming Royal London One-Day Cup fixtures.

The revised squad in full: Will Rhodes (Captain), Yorkshire; Jonathan Tattersall (Vice-Captain), Yorkshire; Tom Alsop, Hampshire; Ed Barnard, Worcestershire; Karl Carver, Yorkshire; Joe Clarke, Worcestershire; Matt Fisher, Yorkshire; Rob Jones, Lancashire; Saqib Mahmood, Lancashire; Josh Shaw, Yorkshire; Dominic Sibley, Surrey; Brad Taylor, Hampshire; Luke Wood, Nottinghamshire
