Boyle brilliant as NZ XI fall just short
A valiant chase from the New Zealand XI including a Jack Boyle century wasn’t quite enough as the hosts fell just 12 runs short against India A in their second one-day match at Bert Sutcliffe Oval in Lincoln.
Opener Boyle (130) was masterful at the top scoring 17 boundaries after India A set them a massive 373 for victory.
Boyle put on 144 with Finn Allen (87) for the third wicket to give their side a chance, along with late cameos from Daryl Mitchell (41) and Dane Cleaver (44).
Earlier, India A opener Prithvi Shaw scored a massive 150 off 100 balls to help post the massive total that was ultimately just out of reach of the NZ XI.
