England Under 19 gain consolation win

By M. Shamil Amit
5th Youth ODI

The visiting England Under 19 side gained a consolation win over hosts Sri Lanka who had already clinched the five match series. Earlier Sri Lanka recorded three wins. Yesterday however the English lads gained a seven wicket win in the fifth and final limited over game at Braybrooke Place.

An unbroken 92 runs stand for the third wicket between opener Bill Foakes and Ateeq Javid saw them through with 95 balls (15.5 overs) to spare. Foakes remained unbeaten on 69 with nine boundaries while Javid chipped in with a 49 which had two boundaries and a six.

Sri Lanka came into the game making a few changes, including skipper Bhanuka Rajapakse who were rested. The side was led by Richmond’s Yasoda Lanka while Koshan Dhanushka, Dilshan Dhanushka, Nimna Karunaratne, Kasun Rajitha and Sandun Weerakkody made their debut.
Sri Lanka winning the toss and electing to bat underwent an early setback as they lost their first wicket in the second ball of the first over that of Nimna Karunaratne.

From there on, apart for a 22 runs stand for the second wicket between Niroshan Dickwella and Sandun Weerakkody, the England bowlers were in control with their left and right arm pace combination of Matt Dunn and skipper Lewis Gregory tormenting them.
