Hugh Bernard takes three wickets in England U19 win v Australia

Monday 17th August 2015

Hugh Bernard was again the pick of the bowlers for England Under 19s as they won at Derby to level the five-match series against Australia at 1-1.

The Kent Cricket Academy graduate, who signed his first pro contract this summer, struck in an excellent seven-over spell with the new ball, trapping opener Jonte Pattison LBW.

The 18-year-old from Folkestone removed wicketkeeper Tom Healy, son of former Australia gloveman Ian, caught at long-on in the final over of the innings.

He then combined with county colleague Ryan Davies to dismiss Jhye Richardson who stumped off the final ball.

Essex teenager Daniel Lawrence struck a fine 119 off 103 balls to take England within reach of the 227 victory target before a late collapse.

Ryan Davies was out for six as England lost six wickets for 45 before Brad Taylor and Jared Warner settled home nerves to seal a tense three-wicket win by adding 29 for the eighth wicket to level the series.

Next up is the third match of the series at Leicester on Thursday.
