INDIA ‘A’ IN COMMAND VS LIONS
Wayanad (Kerala): A brilliant
206 by Priyank Panchal and a quickfire 142 by wicketkeeper K.S. Bharat helped India ‘A’ take control against England Lions on the third day of the first unofficial Test here on Saturday. India ‘A’ declared their innings at
540 for 6 in reply to England Lions’ 340 to gain a 200-run/ Out-of-favour K.L. Rahul, who had a dismal tour of Australia, finally found his touch and was unbeaten on 88 on Friday. But he could add only one run to his overnight score. Panchal, 89 not out overnight, continued his imperious form. Brief scores: England Lions 340 & 20 for no loss vs India ‘A’
540/6 decl. (Priyank Panchal 206, Bharat 142, Rahul 89).
