England Lions won the first unofficial ODI on Sunday. Batting first, Cricket Australia XI scored 281 in their 50 overs. England Lions chased it down easily, winning the game by six wickets with ten deliveries to spare. Cricket Australia XI would look to level the series and bounce back from their defeat, while the England Lions would try to repeat the feat.
Max Bryant scored a swashbuckling hundred in the first game and is expected to go all guns blazing in the second game as well. Bradley Hope scored a well constructed 41, while Jake Lehmann and Will Sutherland also got starts. For England Lions, Sam Hain scored an unbeaten 122, while Laurie Evans agonisingly missed out on a century. He was dismissed on 94. Daniel Lawrence also scored a quick-fire half-century against the hosts.
