Yorkshire stars Rob Hewitt, Alex Jervis and Henry Wainman all helped England’s Learning Disability and Deaf teams make a winning start to their respective Ashes campaigns overnight.

The International Inclusion series kicked off in Brisbane with a trio of T20 England victories; two for the LD side and one for the Deaf team.

Hewitt returned the performance of the day from a Yorkshire player, 3-20 from four overs in the opening LD game as Australia, chasing 117, were bowled out for just 89.

Jervis returned an excellent 0-13 from four overs with the new ball.

Earlier, key batter Dan Bowser had made a measured 40 in England’s 116-6.

In the second game, Bowser, a powerful left-hander with second XI experience with Somerset and National Counties cricket under his belt with Devon, added 39 as England chased down a 122 target with 17 balls remaining.

Opener Jack Perry top-scored with 60 off 34 balls.

In the game between the two nations’ Deaf teams, Australia made 91-6, a total comfortably overhauled by England, for whom Yorkshire’s Wainman was at the crease when victory was secured.

The series continues Down Under on Friday when both teams are back in action.
