Alex Jervis and Rob Hewitt helped England’s Learning Disability win the T20 tri-series final against Australia at the Wanderers ground in Johannesburg yesterday.
Yorkshire D40 seamer Jervis continued to be miserly with the ball, as he has been all throughout England’s unbeaten campaign.
He returned impressive figures of 0-12 from three overs in Australia’s 140-5, including a top score of 44 for Jamie Phillips.
In reply, England captain Chris Edwards then top-scored with an unbeaten 52 off 37 balls in a dominant chase of 141, achieved for the loss of only two wickets with 3.2 overs to spare.
Hewitt did not bat or bowl in the final, but nonetheless was part of an undefeated seven-match campaign. And England have not lost a series of any type since 2010, losing only twice in their last 42 matches.
Representation for Yorkshire’s national D40 champions continues next month when James O’Conner and Cameron Sweeney take on the Deaf World Cup with England in Qatar, starting on December 3.
