A hundred from Michael Carberry helped England Lions to a three-wicket win over a Mumbai XI at the Brabourne Stadium. The match was one of three hastily arranged following England's exit from the Duleep Trophy.
While Carberry took the plaudits, the headlines were made by Andrew Flintoff, who returned to action after a five-month lay-off with ankle problems. He did little aside from taking a catch at second slip, but the fact he was back will put a spring in the step of England supporters.
"It was good to see Fred back playing again," David Parsons, the manager of the side, said. "It was unfortunate that when he went in we had a run-chase on and he didn't get many runs. But judging by the look on his face when he went out to bat, he was just happy to be out there again, and he came through without any problems."
Carberry made 103 - his second hundred of the tour - and received good support from James Hildreth and Adil Rashid As the Lions chased down a stiff target of 269. The game went to the last over and it took a six from Liam Plunkett off the penultimate ball to see England home.
