ENGLAND UNDER-19s were made to toil in the field on the second day by Emerging Wellington and also picked up another injury yesterday. Seam bowler Matt Whiley was forced out of the attack with a groin injury after bowling four overs as the home side replied to England's 420 all out with 282 for 4.

The Durham seamer Marc Symington picked up the first wicket to fall when he trapped Suresh de Silva leg before, but fellow opener Leighton Morgan reached his half-century before being caught behind by wicket-keeper John Maunders off medium-pacer Giles Haywood.

Joe Consedine reached 91 before he was well caught in the gully by Michael Carberry. That wicket was the second of two for Lancashire all-rounder Jona-than Fearick, who had not bowled since the opening match because of a shin injury.

Earlier, opener Leighton Morgan and left-hander Sam Fairley had cracked half- centuries in a game that looked to be heading for a draw.
