England U19 298 (Harmison 57, Chopra 50, Ali 52) v Sri Lanka
Scorecard

Ben Harmison topscored with 57 as England Under 19s made 298 all out on the first day against Sri Lanka Under 19s at Headingley. There were fifties, too, for the captain Varun Chopra and Moeen Ali, while Joe Denly just missed out on his half-century, with 48.

He and Chopra gave England a strong platform with an opening stand of 68, before Shalika Karunanayake trapped Chopra lbw for 50, the first of his three wickets. Chathupama Gunasinghe also claimed three wickets to help drag Sri Lanka back into things, removing Denly and Christopher Thompson in quick succession and later adding Adam Harrison.

England had been well set at 207 for 3, but slid to 209 for 6 with Kevin Latouf's run out on 30 precipitating the mini-collapse. Ali marshalled a healthy response with Tom Smith, but when Smith fell on 21, a second collapse ended with England losing their last four wickets for 38 runs.
