Gary Ballance scores century

England hopeful Gary Ballance scores his second century in as many County Championship outings for Yorkshire.

Yorkshire's Gary Ballance boosted his chances of being in the England squad for the upcoming Test matches against Sri Lanka by scoring a century during the second innings against Middlesex this afternoon.

The 24-year-old, who made his England debut during the most recent Ashes series, was eventually caught by Steven Finn at Lord's for 130 runs - a knock that included 15 fours and six sixes.

It was the second century that the left-hander has scored in as many County Championship fixtures.

Meanwhile, his teammate and fellow England hopeful Joe Root scored 63 from 100 deliveries before he was trapped lbw by Finn.
