Day 5 Wrap – England Maintain Unbeaten Streak In 2023 II Trination Series

TSHWANE: England extended their undefeated run in the Cricket South Africa (CSA) and South African Sports Association for the Intellectually Impaired (SASA II) Trination Series with a convincing eight-wicket victory over Australia on Friday.

After opting to bat first, Australia faced a quick downfall, getting bowled out in just under 16 overs. The English bowlers were instrumental in this feat, securing five crucial run-outs and collectively restricting Australia to a modest total of 99.

In response, England comfortably chased down the target, with Ronnie Jackson leading the charge with an unbeaten 53* off 34 deliveries. Daniel Bowser contributed 19 runs, Jonathan Gale added 15, and Christopher Edwards remained not out with 11*, solidifying England’s win.

Chasing 137 runs for victory, SA concluded their innings at 130/6. Key contributions came from Koketso Chabedi (26*), Mzwandile Mhlongo (25), and Jan Makololo (19*). Despite their efforts, South Africa couldn’t surpass the target set by Australia.
