Match Notes

  • Klinger digs in after Bairstow blows

    Asked to score 354 runs in a minimum of 64 overs, Australia A treated England's lunchtime declaration as nothing more than a rhetorical question

  • Kerrigan's six underlines his potential

    Simon Kerrigan, the Lancashire left-arm spinner, took six wickets to put England Lions into a strong position against Australia A at Old Trafford

  • Bopara 'not ready' for return

    Ravi Bopara has stood down from the opening England Lions match against Australia A at Old Trafford after feeling he was not ready to return to cricket

  • Morgan fifty lifts Lions

    Eoin Morgan made 50 batting at No. 3 for England Lions on a damp opening one of the first unofficial Test against Australia A

  • Cowan leads strong Australia A reply

    The Australia A captain Ed Cowan continued his productive tour of England, leading a strong reply from the visitors after the allrounder Chris Woakes scored 92 to push England Lions to 315 on the second day at Old Trafford
