Gareth Batty, Worcestershire's right-arm Test off-spin bowler, took a career-best seven for 23 as Antigua & Barbuda were skittled for 157 - despite a century opening stand - in England A's opening match in the West Indies in Antigua yesterday.
England declared on their overnight 341 for eight, allowing the bowlers to get in as much practice as possible after many of the tourists' batsmen scored confidenceboosting runs on Sunday.
Batty, conceding fewer than two runs an over, gave England A a massive cushion of a 184-run lead before they began their second innings. By the end of the second day the visitors had reached 116 for one, for an overall lead of 300.
Antigua openers Austin Richards (71) and Amwaa Prince put on 101 before Batty struck - dismissing both batsmen within eight runs of each other.
From that point on, Antigua collapsed - with Alex Loudon, the Warwickshire off-spinner, and Kabir Ali, Worcester-shire's pace bowler, joining Batty in the wickets column. Batty's previous career-best return was seven for 52 for Worcestershire against Northamptonshire in 2004.
After tea Ed Joyce, who had failed to score in the first innings, reached a well-crafted 50.
The Middlesex left-hander was caught by Richards off Justin Athanaze - but captain, Worcestershire skipper Vikram Solanki, with 62 not out, and Owais Shah saw England through to stumps in complete control. n Sri Lanka fast bowlers Ruchira Perera and Farveez Maharoof paved the way for a five-wicket victory in the opening one-day international by taking six wickets in Bangladesh's total of 118 in Bogra.
Kumar Sangakkara scored 50 as the visitors reached their target in 24.1 overs.
Opening bowler Perera took three for 23 while Farveez Maharoof had three for 30 after the hosts decided to bat. Bangladesh collapsed to 37 for five inside 11 overs after the bowlers found raw movement at the Shaheed Chandu Stadium.
All-rounder Khaled Mahmud, playing the last match of his career, offered resistance with 36 while Aftab Ahmed (21) and Alok Kapali (19 not out) were the only other batsmen to reach double figures in an innings lasting 35.5 overs.
