A great start to the Grey Ashes with an Aussie win in the first ODI at Thame.
England were asked to bat and with rain interrupting play, ended 9/201 off 42 overs. The key
bowler for Australia was Bill Blair with figures of 4/42 off nine overs. Australia successfully
chased this tally down scoring 4/206 with the winning runs being scored in the final over, off the
bat of Bill Blair. Key contributors with the bat were Walsh 58, Higgins 36, Jenson (M of M) 70 not
out and Blair 13 not out.
