Things didn’t Ballance in Hampshire’s favour

Have your say

Michael Carberry turned in a match-winning display for England Lions against Bangladesh A.

The Hampshire left-hander struck a brilliant 146 with the bat as the hosts plundered 367 for three in their 50 overs at Taunton.

Carberry’s knock, which further pressed his claims to add to his sole Test cap, spanned just 132 balls and included 18 fours and four sixes.

He shared an opening stand with Ageas Bowl team-mate James Vince (28).

And went on to add another 180 with fellow centurion James Taylor (106 not out).

Carberry then made his mark with the ball for the second match in succession.

His two for two wrapped up victory in the first match of the three-game series at Bristol.

And at Taunton he came on in the 45th over to take one for one and complete the series victory for the Lions.

Hampshire spinner Danny Briggs bowled 10 wicketless overs for 36.

The final match of the series – on Saturday – is also at Taunton.
