England toasted a pair of wins over Wales when the two teams met at Lord's for two Cricket For People with Disabilities internationals.

In the first match, which was in the Zodiac category, England bowled out Wales for 123 before successfully chasing that down for the loss of four wickets.

England's stars were Michael Chant who took 4-19 before Keith Hance and Tom Griffiths built the platform with the bat by scoring 27 and 25 respectively.

England made it two from two when they beat Wales by nine wickets in the Zenith category.

Wales mustered 82 for eight from their 20 overs with Damian Halford making 16. For England Nick Dean and Alan Woodman both took three wickets.

England's reply was based on Steve Wiltshire's unbeaten 27 and 26 not out from Callum Tucker. Nick Dean then hit 17 not out to see his side home.
