Surrey left arm spinner Fred Bridges has been named in the England Physical Disability Squad for their upcoming tour of the UAE.

The 23 year old from Warnham in Surrey has been captain of Surrey’s Learning and Physical Impairment County side for the past three years and playing  in the County Championship competition

England Physical Disability Head Coach, Chris Ellison, has named a fifteen-man squad to play a six match ODI and T20 international series against the Pakistan Physical Disability team.

The fourteen-day tour, which gets underway on the 16th March, will consist of three forty over One-Day Internationals and three T20 Internationals, all played at the ICC Global Cricket Academy in Dubai.

It will be the second time that England’s Physical Disability team has contested an official international series against their counterparts from Pakistan, following the team’s inaugural tour to the UAE in 2012.  On that occasion Pakistan proved to be too strong, as England went down 2-0 in the T20 series and subsequently lost the ODIs 2-1.
