India A vs. England Lions: Second Unofficial Test Preview

India 'A' and England Lions will come hard at each other as they gear up once again for the second and final Unofficial Test of the series. The first match ended in a draw after batsmen from both sides dominated the proceedings. While the likes of Ben Duckett, Sam Hain and Ollie Pope have scored gritty fifties for the English side, the Indian batsmen took their batting to another level as Priyank Panchal scored a double ton and Srikar Bharat scored a century as well.

It was a tough outing for the English bowlers as the Indian side posted 540 runs in only a single innings. Although the English batsmen showed a much better resolve than the one-day series, Navdeep Saini showed that he is way too good for these batsmen as he claimed a 5-wicket haul in the first innings. As the teams go into this match, England will be desperate to end the tour on a high after troubled times throughout the tour. The Indian 'A' side, however, will want to maintain their domination just as they have throughout the series.
