Board President XI thrash England Lions in warm-up match

Board President XI registered a 152-run win over England Lions on the second and final day of the warm-up match on Monday, ahead of the two-match unofficial Test series.

Ishan Kishan followed up his first innings score of 40 not out with an enterprising 55-ball 55 which included 5 fours and 4 sixes.

In their second innings, the Lions lost Test discard Ben Duckett for 9, lbw to Aniket Choudhary.

Steven Mullaney made only 2 runs but skipper Sam Billings (36 not out) and Will Jacks (21 not out) played out the rest of the overs.

England Lions had earlier declared their first innings at 145 for 6 in 60 overs. In reply, BP XI made 134 for 5 in 30 overs.
