Two of Kent’s ris­ing young stars have caught the at­ten­tion of na­tional selec­tors. Wick­et­keeper Ryan Davies and pace­man Hugh Bernard have both been se­lected in Eng­land squads. Davies, who plays his club cricket for Sand­wich, will go into camp with the Eng­land un­der-17 squad for two weeks on Sun­day (Au­gust 10). In that time, Eng­land will play a one-dayer against the South African un­der-19s be­fore play­ing the Pak­istan un­der-17s in three one-day­ers and a three-day Test. Mean­while, Bernard, (pic­tured) who plays for Folke­stone and is a team­mate of Davies in the Lon­don and East Re­gion squad for the un­der-17 Su­per 4 Com­pe­ti­tion, has been named in the English Devel­op­ment Pro­gramme squad. They will play against the Eng­land un­der-19 and Pak­istan un­der-17 sides in lim­ited overs fix­tures later this month.
