Bernard takes two wickets in England U19 tour defeat to India

Kent bowler Hugh Bernard took two wickets as England Under 19s lost to India in a rain-affected ODI in Colombo.

The 19-year-old Kent Cricket Academy graduate opened the bowling as India posted 254 for seven in 36 overs after being invited to bat.

The Folkestone seamer took 2-46 before further showers led to a revised Duckworth-Lewis target of 245 in 29 overs.

Essex’s Daniel Lawrence top-scored with 55 as England lost regular wickets before last man Bernard finished unbeaten on one from three balls.

Former Kent scholar Ryan Davies did not play as Tom Moores of Sussex kept wicket.

England Under 19s will continue the tri-series against Sri Lanka on Monday (14 December) as preparation for the World Cup in Bangladesh next month.
