Brandon pace bowler Tymal Mills makes England Lions debut in win over Bangladesh A

Brandon pace bowler Tymal Mills enjoyed a winning debut for England Lions today as they won their final one-day match against Bangladesh A in Sylhet.

The Lions had already lost the five-match series, and called in 19-year-old Essex prospect Mills for his first appearance of the tour.

Mills, who plays club cricket for Mildenhall, bowled a tidy seven-over spell, taking one for 22, as Bangladesh A were bowled out for 152 in the 45th over. Northamptonshire's Jack Brooks was the leading Lions bowler, taking three for 35.

The Lions then comfortably reached their target for the loss of four wickets, Leicestershire's James Taylor top scoring with 65no, as Bangladesh A won the series 3-2.

Mills will be hoping his contribution earns him a place in the line-up for two Twenty20 matches against Bangladesh A, on Sunday and Monday, in Dhaka.
