Hants dup help England clinch series



First published in Sport

Hampshire duo Tom Alsop and Brad Taylor starred as England U19s clinched their ODI series against South Africa at Trent Bridge.

Batting at No.3, Alsop followed Sunday's 80-ball hundred with a 68-ball 57 (three fours, one six) in a 39-run win on the same ground as England went 3-0 up in the five-match series.

Alsop’s Hampshire teammate Brad Taylor, 17, has also impressed. Having taken 1-32 from his ten overs on his U19 ODI debut the day before, he hit a 17-ball 21 (one four, one six) at No. 10, before bowling another frugal ten overs costing just 24 runs.

The remaining matches take place at Leicester on Wednesday and at Derby on Friday.
