Tom Kohler-Cadmore is backing his good mate Saqib Mahmood to shine in an England shirt and says the decision to look at some new faces during the ongoing tour of New Zealand has given him extra motivation to progress his own game.

The Yorkshire batsman is one of the host of young players on England’s radar having represented the Lions, something he hopes to do again this winter.

Ahead of next winter’s T20 World Cup in Australia and following this summer’s drawn Ashes series, the England hierarchy are looking at some new names in the five-match T20 series and the two-match Test series.

Mahmood, Tom Banton, Pat Brown, Zak Crawley, Matt Parkinson and Dom Sibley are all in line to debut across the next five weeks, starting with the first T20 on Friday.
