England will lock horns with England Lions in their second three-day warm-up match at Ian Healy Oval in Brisbane starting on November 30, Tuesday.
The first warm-up game between the two teams at Peter Burge Oval in Brisbane turned out to be a damp squib. The match ended in a draw after rain played spoilsport for a major part of three days.
In overcast conditions, England opted to bat first. Rory Burns and Haseeb Hameed looked in great touch. Burns was the more attacking of the two as he scored 39 off 67 with the help of four fours. Hameed went on to score 53 off 109 with eight fours.
Sam Cook was the pick of the England Lions bowlers as he conceded runs at an economy rate of 1.37 from his eight overs. Saqib Mahmood, Liam Norwell and Matt Parkinson were a tad on the expensive side. Only 29 overs could be bowled over the entirety of three days.
The other England batters, including Joe Root, Zak Crawley, Ben Stokes and others, would also want to get a hit in the middle. The England bowlers didn’t get any sort of practice due to rain in the previous game and would be eager to correct that in the upcoming match.
