LONDON: Worcestershire seamer Josh Tongue has been added to the England Men’s Test squad for the Test match against Ireland starting at Lord’s on Thursday 1 June 2023.

Josh Tongue has impressed for several seasons in domestic competition and was part of the England Lions tour of Sri Lanka earlier this year and featured prominently in the red ball part of that series.

Josh Tongue has come through the Worcestershire pathways from junior ranks and represented the club at all levels.

Luke Wright, England Men’s National Selector, said: “We have been monitoring Josh Tongue for quite some time and he deserves this call-up to the Test squad. It will be a great experience for him to understand and get used to the environment under Ben (Stokes) and Brendon (McCullum).

“It is important to have players ready to respond and with a big summer of Test cricket coming up, we will need that depth to our squad. We wish Josh and the rest of the squad well for the first international of the campaign.”

Josh Tongue will join up with the rest of the squad this weekend.
