Rawlins claims two wickets in losing cause
Delray Rawlins claimed two wickets in a losing cause for the England Under-19 side in the fourth youth one-day international against India who clinched the five-match series with a 230-run win in Mumbai.
For the first time in the series the Bermudian all-rounder failed to reach double figures with the bat, falling for nine off 14 deliveries after mistiming a pull and was caught at mid-off, but still has an average of 86 — leading the team by 52.5 runs.
The left-handed batsman batted at No 4 for the second straight match after being promoted up the order after knocks of 107 not out, 46 and 96.
Rawlins took two for 78 with his slow left arm, including the scalp of early-order batsman Prithvi Shaw, one of two players scoring centuries for India who piled up 382 for nine in their 50 overs after losing the toss.
Shaw hit an aggressive 105 from 89 balls while opener Shubman Gill hammered 160 from 120 balls — his second century of the series — as India found runs easy to come by at the Wankhede Stadium.
Seam bowlers Arthur Godsal and Henry Brookes also claimed two wickets for the visiting team who used seven bowlers in vain to try and dismiss India. Opening bowler Godsal had two for 78 and second-change Brookes two for 58, the best figures in England's attack.
In reply, England were dismissed for a 152 in 37.4 overs.
Ollie Pope, the wicketkeeper, led the England batting with 59 from 85 balls while fellow middle-order batsman Will Jacks gathered 44 from 49 balls.
Seam bowlers Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Vivekanand Tiwari took four for 31 and three for 20 to lead India's attack.
The fifth and final game of the series takes place in Mumbai on Wednesday.
