Oxford MCCU’s Karl Penhale and Wilf Marriot have been selected for the Combined MCC Universities squad, which flies out today for a pre-season tour to the United Arab Emirates.

Bowler Penhale, who also plays for Aston Rowant, and batsman Marriot, will be looking to line up in the opening day-night 50-over clash against the MCC Young Cricketers at the Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, on Sunday.

They will then play a three-day game against the Young Cricketers before meeting them once more in a Twenty20 clash.

The squad will also have the opportunity to test themselves against county opposition in 50-over matches against Sussex and Lancashire.
