England A (163-1) beat Windies A (162-10) by 9 wickets with half the overs remaining on the back of a clinical bowling effort from Reece Topley (7.3-16-4) and Liam Dawson (10-21-4) and an unbeaten breezy 80-run knock from Tom kohler-cadmore.
Batting first, Windies A did not get off to a great start as both openers Chandrapal Hemraj (10) and Jermaine Blackwood (11) were sent back to the pavilion by Reece Topley.
Sunil Ambris (27) and Devon Thomas (45) showed some resistance in the middle order but failed to get any help from the lower order. As a result, the entire team bundled out for 162 in the 45th over.

ENG Lions won by 9 wickets#ENGAvWIA
Liam Dawson (10-21-4) and Reece Topley (7.3-16-4) were the standout bowlers who bagged 4 wickets each.
Chasing a miniscule total, England A's path to victory was made easier by opener Tom kohler-cadmore (80*) who played extremely well. Nick Gubbins (27) complemented Kohler-cadmore in the 43-run opening partnership.
After Gubbins was run-out, Sam Hain (48*) partnered with Kohler-cadmore to take England to victory within 25 overs. This was a clinical performance from England A as they did not allow the opposition team to come in the match at any point of time.
