THE OFF-SPINNER Richard Dawson led the England Under-19 side to a comfortable victory over Wellington Emerging Players XI with figures of 7 for 44 here yesterday.

The teams had agreed to set up a run chase on an easy-paced pitch and, after England had declared their second innings on 142 for 6, Wellington were set 249 to win in a minimum of 61 overs. But they fell well short, being dismissed for 152 and losing by 96 runs.

For a while they looked on course as the opener Suresh de Silva stroked the new ball around. After a half-century off only 50 balls, though, he was caught in the deep by Marc Symington off Dawson.

Joe Consedine was run out by Michael Carberry after a suicidal single, then Dawson trapped Sam Fairley lbw on the back foot. Wellington's only other resistance came from the big-hitting Scott Golder. He cracked 41 off 40 balls but hit across the line at Dawson once too often and was bowled.

Wellington collapsed to 96 for 6 at tea and Dawson took three more wickets soon after tea, before Symington had the last man Jetan Patel caught and bowled to wrap up the home side's innings.

Final day of three; England Under-19 won toss
