After succumbing to a 102-run-loss at the hands of India-A on Tuesday, England-A will look to get their campaign back on track when they take on a beleaguered Windies-A unit in the 5th match on Thursday.
After notching up back-to-back wins in the first bout of the league stage, England-A ran into a rampaging Indian batting line-up as the trio of Mayank Agarwal (112), Shubman Gill (72), and Hanuma Vihari’s 63-ball-69 took them to the swords to post a mammoth 6-309 in 50 overs. Ed Bernard with figures of 2-51 was the pick of the England-A bowlers. Chasing 310, none of the England-A batsman in Livingstone (23), Foakes (32), Mullaney (23), and Liam Dawson (38) could kick-on as India-A’s bowlers spearheaded by Shardul Thakur (3-53) claimed wickets at regular intervals to bowl the hosts out for 207.
As England-A strive to get their campaign back on track, they’ll take confidence from the fact that they’ll be up against the same opposition which they comprehensively defeated by 87 runs in their previous encounter. After back-to-back losses, Windies face an arduous task of reviving their campaign and would require a huge win over England-A to garner any hopes of making it to the finals.
