Scorecard

Captain Jamie How led from the front with a patient 161 as New Zealand A piled on the runs in Queenstown. Wicketkeeper Peter Ingram and James Franklin provided able support with solid fifties as the hosts finished strongly on a luckless for the England Lions bowlers.

Resuming on 22 for 1, the overnight batsmen, How and Ingram, continued strongly and slowly inched their way to fifties. Mark Davies, who picked up the only wicket to fall on the previous day, finally struck, getting Ingram caught behind by Ben Scott for 73. The partnership yielded 177 runs with Ingram stroking 11 boundaries during his 161-ball innings.

How soon brought up his hundred and together with Kane Willamson added 55 for the third wicket. Gareth Batty bowled Willamson for 22 with the score on 236 but any hopes of further breakthroughs quickly vanished as Franklin and How batted England Lions out of the game.

How remained unbeaten, hitting 20 fours and a six in his 328-ball stay, while Franklin's 130-ball 83 comprised 13 boundaries and a six.
