ENGLAND UNDER-19s were in danger of losing the second match of their New Zealand tour after leaving a Central Districts Emerging Players XI to score 85 for victory in Palmerston North yesterday.

Beginning the second day on 137 for 7, the home side were finally all out for 218, a lead of 81 that looked as though it could prove decisive even before the England collapse that was to follow, as the tourists allowed themselves to be dismissed for 165 in their second innings. Central Districts finished the second day eight without loss.

Regan West starred for the home side with 70, while England's Mathew Whiley claimed 5 for 41. England drew their first match against an Auckland Emerging Players XI and are due to play three Tests and three one-day internationals. The first Test starts on Tuesday.
