England Under-19s were on the wrong end of a one-wicket defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka in their second World Cup group game on Sunday.
At the Dubai International Stadium, England’s total of 230-9 was chased down with seven balls to spare as the Sri Lankans recovered from 160-7.
Leicestershire’s Rob Sayer, who used to play for Peterborough Town in the NCL, was the pick of the attack as he took 2-33 from his 10 overs of off-spin.
Earlier in the day, Jonathan Tattersall top scored with 95 but Northamptonshire’s Ben Duckett missed the game.
Next up for England in Group D is a clash with New Zealand tomorrow (Tuesday).
