Rob Sayer had a terrific game but England under 19s lost the fourth match of the tri-nations tournament against Pakistan in UAE.
The 50-over competition is part of England's World Cup preparations, with that tournament also being hosted by UAE in February.
Off-spinner Sayer had wonderful figures of 1-21 off his ten overs as Pakistan were restricted to 241-8 in Sharjah.
In reply, England made 194 with Sayer top-scoring with a belligerent 47 off just 35 deliveries after coming in at number nine. The Leicestershire man struck four fours and three sixes in his knock but England lost by 47 runs.
England had previously won the first game against UAE by 42 runs. England posted 300-6, with Joe Clarke top-scoring with 81 not out. Jonathan Tattersall then took 3-34 as UAE were bowled out for 258.
Sayer, who impressed for Leicestershire’s Second XI in 2013, played in England's second game of the series against Pakistan.
In that match, England were bowled out for 168 with Sayer (0) the 8th wicket to fall. Sayer then bowled six overs for 31 runs as Pakistan edged home by three wickets.
England returned to winning ways in some style today. UAE were bowled out for just 94, with Rob Jones leading the way with 3-19. Jack Winslade, Harry Finch and Miles Hammond each claimed two wickets.
England cruised to victory inside 22 overs with opener Tattersall guiding the side home with an unbeaten 42. Sunday’s defeat to Pakistan leaves England second in the group, and they face UAE tomorrow in the fifth of six group matches. A win will secure their place in Sunday's final.
