Leicester:

Bengal pacer Ranadeb Bose (5/51) picked up his five wicket haul of England tour as India bowled out Sri Lanka 'A' for 266 runs on the opening day of their three-day warm up game at Grace Road.

India finished the day at 25 for one after losing the wicket of Dinesh Kaarthick (11).

Wasim Jaffer (7) and Gautam Gambhir (3) were at the crease when stumps were drawn.

The Sri Lanka 'A' innings revolved around Michael Vandort (52) and Thiulan Samaraweera (75).

Sri Lanka 'A' after opting to bat were sailing along merrily at 105 for 1, before Bose's excellent spell just before and after lunch removed Dilruwan Perera (34), Malinda Warnapura (3) Michael Vandort in quick succession.

Just before tea, Bose trapped Kaushal Lokuarachchi (35) leg before.

The Bengal pacer eventually wrapped up the innings when he had Chanaka Welegedara (1) caught at the wicket.

Ramesh Powar, meanwhile, bowled well on a decent pitch after he was introduced as early as the 10th over of the innings.

He took a wicket in his first over when he dismissed Mehela Udawatta (20) and then he went on to mop up the tail removing Thiulan Samaraweera (75), Rangana Herath (0) and Akalanka Ganegama (0) as Sri Lanka A lost its last four wickets for just seven runs.
