U-19 tri-series: India colts down England
Colombo: Top-order batsmen made it count as India Under-19 stretched their unbeaten run to three matches after outplaying England colts by 20 runs in the tri-series youth cricket ODI here yesterday.
Electing to bat at the R Premadasa Stadium, India U-19 rode on a 113-run opening stand between Himanshu Rana (50) and skipper Rishabh Pant (71) to post a challenging 261 all out in 50 overs.
Leg-spinner Mason Crane bagged three wickets, while pace spearhead Sam Curran and part-time spinner Dan Lawrence picked up two wickets each.
In reply, the English side had their moments in the game but the Indian bowlers got wickets at regular intervals to flatten the opposition chase.
