Marc that more an odd occurence then common practise, majority of countries release their players from FC duty for U19 games. In Bangladesh and Zimbabwe all their players basically play FC cricket and they all get released. In Sri Lanka, India and Pakistan half the players if not more play FC cricket and also get released. Even in Australia Cameron White was a regular in the Victorian side before he got released to play for the the U19s in the World Cup.Originally Posted by marc71178
But in saying all that some countries do fixture their U19 games so they don't clash with the domestic season and maybe that is something that the CWBCC and Under 19 Board can look at in the future. We just hope that seniors player and in particular captains, can start to back this tour a bit more and their players in it and we will look into the issued raised after the tour.

You see pretty much all of those instances are for the World Cup, not for meaningless tours in between.Originally Posted by chaminda_00

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
You sure about that its every common that players from the sub-continent are taken away from domestic cricket to take part in so called 'meaningless' U19 tours.Originally Posted by marc71178
Yeah, Its not uncommon for A tours to happen in the middle of a domestic season. Precedent is there, especially in the subcont.

I know they were playing at the end of the season, but not sure if they were certain picks back in July.
nope, don't think they'd played more than a couple of games before that, as soon as the counties wanted them they left the squad.Originally Posted by marc71178
I doubt there's ever been an instance, at least not recently, where a player has played for England U-19's when he's been wanted to play by his county
In that case... Rob, Thamba, James...
The CWBCC will not take action against any player who opts out of U-19 service in order to represent domestically and thus perhaps push a stronger immediate claim for Test/ODI selection.

I strongly urge ALL U-19 players, even those not currently selected, to state whether they would be happy to be in contention for a position on U-19 tours, stating specifically whether or not they would be happy to participate in on-season U-19 tours and whether or not they would be happy to participate in off-season U-19 tours.
REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.

its a bit early to be asking people to state whether they would participate in future on season tours, as it may be that they break into their dev league side between now and then.
For thos currently in the squad, i guess it boils down to whether they are willing to risk not getting back in their side when they return from the tour.
