ENGLAND Visually Impaired side and Hook and Newnham Basics played out a thrilling t20 game on Sunday at the King George V Playing Fields.

The visiting England stars posted their highest total of the season as they scored 164 and Hook just managed to get past the total with nine balls to spare.

The England coach finished by saying: “I must thank Hook for all their help in organising this game, especially Jeremy Stewart as without his contribution it would not have happened.”
