Under-19 Cricket:

England wins final One-dayer

The young England cricketers will have something to cheer about prior to their homeward bound journey after winning the fifth and final one day match by 7 wickets against the Sri Lanka Under-19 Team played at Braybrooke Place yesterday.

Sri Lanka won the five match ODI series 3/1 with one game being washed out.

The Sri Lankan lads playing without their regular skipper Bhanuka Rajapaksa and a couple of regulars were made to fight hard for runs amidst a steady England attack.

The Lankans winning the toss and electing to bat at one stage were 63 for 8 in 24.1 overs with medium pacer Lewis Gregory and Matt Dunn doing the damage, sharing seven wickets.

A 56 run ninth wicket stand between Akila Jayasundera (34) and Angelo Jayasinghe (53) took the young Lankans to their final total of 141 in 43.1 overs.

England Under-19 in their pursuit of a moderate 142 were helped by an unbeaten 69 by Ben Foakes facing 107 deliveries with nine boundaries and Ateeq Javed (49 n.o) with two fours and a six to seal the game in England's favour.

Sri Lanka Under-19: 141 in 43.1 overs (Niroshan Dickwella 23, Akila Jayasundera 34, Angelo Jayasinghe 53, Matt Dunn 3 for 26, Lewis Gregory 4 for 22, Tom Milnes 2 for 30).

England Under-19: 145 for 3 in 34.1 overs (Ben Foakes 69 n.o, Ateeq Javed 49 n.o).
