Markande Condemns England Lions to Innings Defeat🙆

Mayank Markande's five-fer bundled out England Lions for 180 after they were asked to follow on, helping India A to an innings and 68-run win and 1-0 win in the two-match series in Mysuru.

Having bundled out England Lions for 144 in the first essay on Thursday, KL Rahul - India A skipper - had asked the visitors to bat again. The openers had safely marshaled the team to 24 for no loss and stumps on the second day, but damage happened early on Day 3.

Barring Ben Duckett's quickfire half-century at the top of the order and Lewis Gregory's 49- ball 44 lower down, there were no noteworthy performances with the bat as they were tourists were bowled out in less than 54 overs.

The collapse began with the fall of Duckett, trapped LBW by Jalaj Saxena soon after notching up his 23rd first-class fifty.

Markande, who went wicketless in his seven overs in the first innings was the wrecker-in-chief of the collapse. The leggie picked his third first-class fifer - accounting for the wickets of Ollie Pope, Steven Mullaney, Dominic Bess, Gregory and Zak Chappell - as only four batsmen managed to register double-digit scores.
