Sri Lanka A conceded 425 in 50 overs in a match against England Lions on Monday.

After winning the toss England Lions decided to bat first and racked up a massive 425-1 against Sri Lanka A, on their way to a 140-run win in Canterbury.

Ben Duckett smashed an unbeaten 220 off 131 balls and DJ Bell-Drummond scored 171 not out off 139 balls. Both Duckett and Drummond shared a staggering 367-run stand.

Sri Lanka’s only success came as Ramith Rambukwella (1-83) picked up Lions skipper Dawid Malan (23), stumped, but the rest of the attack went wicketless, including seamer Thisara Perera, whose 10 overs cost 101 runs.

With the bat, the visitors showed a lot more fight, with Niroshan Dickwella (60) and Mahela Udwatte (40) sharing in a century opening stand.

Perera went some way to making up for his disastrous day with the ball by blasting 45 from 40 balls before he too fell to Garton, bowled, and Sri Lanka ultimately were bowled out for 285 in 47.3 overs.
