Sam Hain's second century of the tournament proved to be in vain as England Lions lost to India A by five wickets in the Tri-series final at The Oval.
Put in to bat first, the Lions lost an early wicket as Tom Kohler-Cadmore was caught for five, bringing Hain to the crease with the Warwickshire batsman in a rich vein of form with the bat in the competition, having also scored 145 not out against the West Indies at Derby in the group stages.
Hain shared a 153-run third-wicket partnership with Liam Livingstone (83) as he reached three figures off 113 balls, having struck seven fours and a six.
However, after Krunal Pandya has Livingstone caught by Axar Patel, England collapsed, losing six wickets for 48 runs as they mustered just 264-9 from their 50 overs having been 217-4 after 40 overs.
India A looked to get their chase off to a swift start and although Matthew Fisher dismissed Prithvi Shaw for 15, Rishabh Pant's unbeaten half-century and contributions from Mayank Agarwal (40), captain Shreyas Iyer (44), Hanuma Vihari (37) and saw India A ease to victory with 10 balls spare.
