An impressive and penetrative spell of bowling by the hitherto unselected Robin Jackman's three-wicket haul, Eddie Hemmings and Vic Marks' combined 5-wickets after Middle-order batsmens Derek Randall, Trevor Jesty and Ian Gould helped to England shocking 98-run victory over Australia in a one-sided game of the tenth match of a Benson & Hedges World Series Cup.

Robin Jackman who took three wickets including those of Australian Captain Kim Hughes - who was celebrating his 29th Birthday and Greg Chappell for nought - in seven balls enabled England to defeat Australia for the first time in the Benson and Hedges World Series Cup

England was bowled out for 207 in 41 overs and defeated Australia by a massive 98 runs when the home side could manage only 109 for collapse from 27.3 overs.

Out-of-favour Robin Jackman burst back from obscuriy to take three wickets for 41 in the Australian defeat, He has remained on the sidelines since December 22 when England played Tasmania in a one-day match in Launceston.

Robin Jackman fired out not only the Australian captain Kim Hughes, who duck out on his 29th Birthday, but also Greg Chappcll for a duck and Kepler Wessels, batting down the order, For one 

The Australians had been surprised that Jackman had been neglected in the One-day international games.

Robin Jackman deserved his Man-of-the-match award although Derek Randall (47), Trevor Jesty (30) and Ian Gould (42) played well and Eddie Hemmings and Vic Marks completed the Australian demise.

Hemmings appeared to have overcome his hand injury when he bowled only 3.3 overs to take three wickets, but early reports from the England camp say he is unlikely to play again on the tour with his bowling hand still injured.

England won the toss and elected to bat first in humid conditions. Captain Bob Willis' ploy of again promoting Ian Botht to open was foiled when Rodney Hogg dismissed the all-rounder without scoring.

England lost David Gower for 25, bowled by Lilee, then Chris Tavaré on 14, taken by Jeff Thomson. When Allan Lamb was trapped 
lbw by Like without scoring a run, England's back was to the wall.

But the mercurial Derek Randall teamed with Trevor Jesty for a fifth-wicket stand of 54 and and then partnered Ian Gould in a sixth-wicket effort for 55 to bring England back into the fight. 

Again the Australians were astray with line and length, giving up nine wides and four no balls in the total of 19 extras. Allan Border and John Dyson blazed away and when Border went on 31. Australia was lost one for 40 after only seven overs.

The 50 was added in 39 minutes from nine overs and when John Dyson went at two for 72, Australia seemed well on the way to another two points. But then Jackman broke through and at one stage took three wickets for one run off six balls. Australia went from three for 73 to six for 96 and with the departure of David Hookes the end was near.
