England Learning Disability wrap up series win

An emphatic series victory in Brisbane

England’s Learning Disability team sealed a 3-0 series win over Australia with a 42-run victory in the final ODI at Dauth Park, Brisbane.

Tayler Young top scored for the tourists, hitting a patient 58 from 74 balls, putting on 92 with Rob Hewitt (38*) for the fifth wicket. Jack Perry fell just shy of a half century, stumped for a run-a-ball 48, as England set the hosts 241 to win from their 40 overs.

Australia’s reply started well, with Boyd Duffield and Gavan Hicks opening the innings with a partnership of 113 from 22 overs.

When Duffield fell for 65, England restricted the scoring rate with just 85 runs scored from the remaining 18 overs. Hicks also passed 50; dismissed for 66 with four overs left.

Young picked up two wickets in the innings, with Ronnie Jackson and Chris Edwards taking one each as Australia finished on 198/4.

Young said: “I’m really pleased with my performance with the bat. I don’t normally get opportunities like that but the coaches showed their belief in me and I took the opportunity with both hands.

“It was a bit of a slow start, but as we went on I found my way and hit my maiden 50.”

England and Australia will now play a five-match IT20 series as part of the INAS Global Games – a multi-sport event for athletes with intellectual disabilities.
