Ben Green impresses for England Under 19′s
Somerset Academy player Ben Green was in good form for the England Under 19 side as they drew their two-day friendly match with The Unicorns at Haslegrave.
The 17 year old from Devon made 30 from 59 balls in the England first innings score of 247 all out but it was with the ball that he really made an impression. Green claimed an incredible five wickets for just three runs from 3.4 overs as The Unicorns were all out for 134 in their first innings. This included a hat-trick.
England declared on 119 for six in their second innings which meant that Green didn’t get the opportunity to bat second time around.
Although he didn’t take a wicket in The Unicorns second innings he was very economical, conceding just 10 runs from his three overs as the match ended in a draw.
