Gleeson plays in England Lions opening win
The seamer took 1/48 in a six-wicket win over a strong Cricket Australia XI at Carrera
Richard Gleeson made a solid start to England Lions' tour of Australia, finishing with figures of 1/48 in a six-wicket win against their Australian counterparts at Carrara Oval.
Gleeson took the wicket of Melbourne Renegades team mate Cameron Boyce before the Lions impressively chased down their 282 target with ten balls to spare.
The 32-year-old is on his second Lions tour, two years after featuring during the winter series in the West Indies, and it was his fifth 50-over match for the Lions.
They play two further One-Day matches against the CA XI in Carrara before moving on to Sydney, where they will come up against a New South Wales side.
