Michael Carberry: Scored 146 in a one-sided England victory
Michael Carberry and James Taylor both struck centuries as England Lions claimed a crushing 191-run win over Bangladesh A in the second unofficial one-day international at Taunton.
Opener Carberry struck 18 fours and four sixes in his 132-ball 146, while Taylor finished unbeaten on 102, a knock which included seven fours and four sixes, as England Lions ran up a daunting 367-3 after winning the toss and opting to bat.
Somerset batsman-wicketkeeper Jos Buttler also added a quickfire 47 off 23 balls on home soil while Ben Stokes contributed an unbeaten 23 off nine deliveries as the Lions, who scored 353 in winning the opening match by 151 runs in Bristol on Tuesday, finished with a flourish.
That huge total proved well beyond Bangladesh A once again as they were bowled out for 176 with more than five overs remaining.
Chris Jordan was easily the pick of the Lions' attack with 4-38 off his 10 overs, while Carberry wrapped things up in his only over as he bowled last man Al-Amin Hossain with his fourth ball.
The Lions will now attempt to complete a series whitewash in the third and final match, which takes place at Taunton on Saturday.
