University of Leeds alumni and past Leeds Bradford MCCU player, Toby Roland-Jones, has earned his first call-up for the England Cricket Squad.
Middlesex pace bowler Roland-Jones, has taken 30 wickets in the County Championship this season but will vie with fellow uncapped bowler Jake Ball for a place in the final XI.
“Toby Roland-Jones has been a consistent performer in the County Championship over the last few years and deserves his chance,”
National selector James Whitaker
If successful, Toby will take the place of James Anderson, who unfortunately injured his shoulder in the third and final Test against Sri Lanka and was not deemed fit enough for consideration.
The full England squad for first Test against Pakistan is as follows: Cook (c), Hales, Root, Vince, Ballance, Bairstow (wk), Moeen, Woakes, Broad, Finn, Ball, Roland-Jones.
