For the first time England took the lead in one-day match records against Zimbabwe when they beat them by 52 runs in the day-night NatWest Series match at Edgbaston tonight; they have now recorded eight victories to Zimbabwe's seven.

The highlight for the home side was a superb innings of 101 by opening batsman Alec Stewart, who held the batting together and enabled the team to reach 262 for the loss of eight wickets. Tight bowling then put Zimbabwe behind the clock and intensified the pressure; with a determined fifty by Neil Johnson they reached 87 for one in the 23rd over, but then a collapse, helped by some fine England bowling and fielding, sent the tourists sliding to 210 for nine wickets.
