England A cruised to a comprehensive seven-wicket victory over the Australian Cricket Academy in Mount Gambier yesterday.

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.
