ENGLAND'S SHAH THING.
Resuming 56 runs ahead on 70 for two, the Academy crumbled to 175 all out in just 24 overs, with Derbyshire fast bowler Andrew Harris claiming 5-61.
Yorkshire opener Michael Vaughan hit a solid 70, including seven fours and a six, to give the tourists the platform to launch their victory chase.
And 18-year-old Owais Shah hit an unbeaten 43 as England reached their target of 165-3 just after tea. The Academy's head coach Rod Marsh, who labelled England's bowlers "pie-throwers" during his lengthy career as Australia's wicketkeeper, admitted: "England looked to have some very good players."
Meanwhile, Surrey yesterday signed Sussex leg-spinner Ian Salisbury, 26.
His former team-mate Ed Giddins will play for Warwickshire when his 19-month drugs ban ends in 1988.
