KINGSTON, Jamaica — West Indies A trounced England Lions by an innings and 17 runs at Sabina Park with a day to spare to take an unbeatable two-nil lead in the three-match “Test” series between the teams.

Entering Tuesday's third day on 34 without loss and needing 243 more runs to make West Indies A bat again, England Lions were bowled out for 260 in their second innings.

Scores: England Lions 145 (57 ovs) & 260 (100.2 ovs); West Indies A 422 (110.4 ovs)

Liam Livingstone and Paul Coughlin provided main resistance for the Lions with 48 and 47, respectively.

The West Indies A left-arm finger spinner Jomel Warrican walked away with his second-straight man of the match award. The 25-year-old's four wickets in the second innings gave him overall figures of 12-103.

Off-spinner Rahkeem Cornwall grabbed 4-88.

West Indies A held a one-nil lead going into the second “Test” after pulling off a two-wicket victory in Trelawny last week. The third match is set to start in Antigua on February 26.
