In the first of England Under-19’s warm up matches for the ICC Under-19 World Cup, Northants Cricket wicketkeeper Ben Duckett scored 92, as England beat Scotland Under-19’s by 153 runs.
The game is the first of two warm up matches for England, before they take on the hosts UAE in their opening World Cup fixture.
Duckett was the game’s top scorer, with his 92 runs coming from just 68 balls, including one six, as England finished on 281 for 4. In reply, Scotland could only muster 128 all out, giving England the perfect start to their time in UAE.
Next up for England will be Bangladesh Under-19’s on Wednesday 12th February, with their opening World Cup fixture against UAE two days later.
