Getting tight now. One wicket in hand, and the Lions will need to bat for about another ten overs. Livingstone still in.

Made a bit of a pudding of what should have been a comfortable win. At least England made them work for it, Livingstone getting his second ton of the game, and the tail not giving it away.

Rayner had an ok tour, not sure he done enough to claim a starting spot for england and sadly for him no tour to Asia or WI in the horizon so won't get picked in Test matches.
Tom Curran been impressive though should be pushing for Test honours soon, same with toby roland jones.
seems like england batsman still generally struggled with spin with Malinda Pushpakumara taking 21 wickets in 2 games.
with the batting livingstone impressed, tom westley was the probably the only other batsman that did well.
Jennings was average and the rest mostly failed.
Not sure england found anything in the batting aspect apart from Livingstone.

Westley did ok I think.

England should play another spinner if Mo bats at five, and I'm not sure Rashid will be the one (whether or not that's fair). Shame Leach was inconsistent, but he seems to be suffering from his action issues.

England need some pace to take to Australia.

yeah westley did ok, but nothing extraordinary that will make him a contender for the test team.
Although he did score a 50 in all first class games this winter for the lions.

Livingstone in truly great touch - I expect to see him continue that for Lancashire this year.

Good to see Triple L continuing in a fine vein of form. The form of Jennings and Hameed on this tour should be a cause for some concern.

Livingstone really pushing his case for selection with a good 10 overs in the ODI

Duckett is back, out for 17. Very sedate batting from Alsop and Jennings by full England standards.

Then a collapse. England Lions should lose from here.
