England Lions v West Indians, Northampton, 4th day
Root Ton Leads Lions to 10 Wickets Victory14-May-2012 02:47:00 GMT
Northampton: Joe Root hit his second first-class hundred as England Lions wrapped up a comfortable 10-wicket win over the West Indies.
Root (115 not out) and Michael Carberry (72 not out) wrapped up the victory with more than a session to spare at Northampton.
It puts the tourists under pressure ahead of the first Test which starts at Lord's on Thursday.
They also have injury concerns over bowlers Kemar Roach and Ravi Rampaul.
Roach took a blow on his right hand while batting on Sunday morning, to go with the ankle he twisted earlier in the match, while seamer Rampaul left the field after four overs with the new ball.
Although Rampaul returned to the field after lunch, he did not bowl for the rest of the match.
Earlier on Sunday, Lions player Jonny Bairstow was called into the England squad for the Lord's match.
After the victory, Root gave credit to his batting partner Carberry who had more to fear from off-spinners Shane Shillingford and Marlon Samuels bowling in tandem on a fourth-day pitch.
West Indians 147 (Bravo 51) and 390 (Powell 108, Coles 4-76)
England Lions 341 (Taylor 118) and 197 for 0 (Root 115*, Carberry 72*)
Result England Lions won by 10 wickets
