Tour game, Adelaide, day four

England took just 44 deliveries on the final day to pick the final three wickets of the Cricket Australia XI innings as they completed a massive 192 run victory in the tour game in Adelaide.

Cricket Australia XI resumed the day with a score of 70 for seven, chasing 267 to win. In the first over of the day, Craig Overton (3-15) castled Matthew Short (28).

James Anderson (3-12) was introduced at the other end and it was a matter of time before he removed the final two wickets of Gurinder Sandhu (17) and Daniel Fallins (1) to bowl them out for 75 runs.

The 192 run victory will give the visitors a lot of confidence as they now head into their third warm-up game to be played in Townsville from 15th November before they lock horns with Australia for the first Test in Brisbane.
