EXMOUTH CCs George Greenway was prominent in both the T20 and the One day International matches that brought to an end the England deaf sides tour of Australia.

The Maer ground teenager featured in all but one of the tri-nation matches that also included South Africa.

He played in both T20 games that saw England comprehensively beat Australia.

In the opening one day game England took on, and beat South Africa with Greenway hitting a 13 ball unbeaten 19 at the end of the England innings alongside his skipper, Umesh Valijee who struck his second century of the tour – the first had also been reached with Greenway batting at the other end!

Greenway and his captain added 32 between them from the final four overs as England closed their 50 overs on 235-5. South Africa were then bowled out for 123 inside 38 overs.

In a T20 game against South Africa, Greenway, batting in the middle order, picked up a second ball duck as England won a low scoring affair. After being bowled out for just 91 in only 15 overs England then bowled and fielded superbly to restrict South Africa to 85-9 in their full twenty overs.

In the first of two T20 meetings with Australia Greenway, batting at number seven, hit an unbeaten 36 off just 22 balls helping to guide England top a close of 154-5 and they then bundled out the hosts for 104 with the final wicket falling three balls from the end of the final over of the day. In the second T20 game Greenway was not needed to bat as England thrashed the hosts by nine wickets.

In the final one day international match Greenway, batting at number eight, hit seven and was sixth out with just 21 on the board as the tour came to something of a disappointing end with that final match lost by nine wickets.

England being hustled out for just 62 in 38.3 overs, a total that the Australians sailed past inside 39 overs for the loss of just the one wicket.
