VI break their duck

ECB logo - small version

England Visually Impaired picked up their first victory of the inaugural World Twenty20 on the back of Matt Dean’s quite sensational 139 not out against South Africa.

Dean’s efforts, combined with an impressive 68 from Justin Hollingsworth, took England to a commanding 265 for one.

South Africa never looked like threatening that target as they were subsequently restricted to 176 for seven.

England will face Nepal tomorrow hoping to make it back-to-back triumphs.
