The England cricketers have easily beaten Australia A by 10 wickets in their tour match at Hobart.

The warm-up for Thursday's first Ashes Test in Brisbane went the tourists' way on the final day, Australia A managing 301 in their second innings to leave England a victory target of just nine runs at Bellerive Oval.

England achieved the total from only one and a half overs, reaching 11 without loss shortly after tea.
