The latest news from the President of Inas
England have been crowned champions of the 4th Inas Tri-Nations Tournament at the De Beers Diamond Oval in South Africa.
The victory came after England had gone unbeaten throughout the 40-over tournament dominating reigning champions Australia and defeating South Africa twice each, before holding their nerve to claim a 19-run victory over South Africa in the final today.
England Learning Disabilities coach Derek Morgan expects his team to compete with Inas Tri-series holders Australia which is currently taking place in South Africa.
Australia have won all three tournaments since the first was held in 2005 but Morgan is hopeful England can break that monopoly.
