Opener Vince suffers second Lions defeat

First published in Sport

James Vince was out for 16 as England Lions lost the second game of their Australia tour.

The Hampshire batsman opened the batting with Varun Chopra – as he did when making 43 during last week’s eight-wicket defeat against Victoria - but was caught behind against former England bowler Ryan Sidebottom as the Lions lost to a Victoria XI by four wickets at St Kilda CC.

Chopra (115) and captain James Taylor (102) both hit centuries as the Lions made 335-4 after winning the toss. But the home side chased down their target with two balls remaining of the 50-over contest.
