CALDY Cricket Club's Chris Edwards has led the England Men's Learning Disability team to another memorable series victory.

England Men's Learning Disability team beat Australia by eight wickets at The Wanderers to win the tri-series in South Africa.

Fittingly it was captain Chris who hit the winning runs - and made an unbeaten half-century - to ensure his team have won every series since 2010.

Having won every group game of the competition convincingly, England were the favourites heading into Sunday's final.

Despite England having won the last two games batting second, Australia opted to bat first and made a decent fist of putting together a competitive total.

Their innings of 140-5 was anchored by Jamie Phillips and Lachlan Mitchell, and at the half-way stage the Australian team would have felt happy at having something to defend.

Ronnie Jackson and Dan Bowser got England off to a good start, but the loss of two wickets put Edwards' team under a bit of pressure. Fortunately Edwards used all his experience and ability to guide his side home, alongside Bowser, with little alarm.

Edwards, who ended unbeaten on 52, hit the winning runs with over three overs to spare, and signalled another triumphant day for the England Men's Learning Disability team.
