Tammy Beaumont stars as England in dominant ODI 4-1 Series win over New Zealand

ammy Beaumont scored a century as England claimed a massive 203-point victory in their final game of the summer and series against New Zealand in Canterbury.

The Kent-born hitter scored 102 for her eighth one-day international cent as England netted an impressive 347 for five of her 50 overs.

Only three women have scored more ODI centuries than the England opener, who confidently played on his home field, raising her 102 out of 114 deliveries.

New Zealand were still behind in the chase and lost regular wickets, dropping to 144 all in 36th, with Lauren Down and Brooke Halliday leading with 27 each.

The home side were helped by New Zealand bowling and fielding, with England’s opener Lauren Winfield-Hill dropping four times to reach 43.

The visitors played 27 extras and made eight drops after winning the draw and batting England.

Winfield-Hill was shot twice by Down when she made five and 15 respectively, before also being dropped on 24 by wicket keeper Katey Martin.

After a failed catch from Amy Satterthwaite when she was on 42, the versatile took the catch on the second time asking to send Winfield-Hill back to the pavilion for 43.

Beaumont spoke of her 14th half-century ODI as she stabilized the sleeves, while Captain Heather Knight was off to a duck.

New Zealand bowling was not as clinical as in previous games as England more than doubled their total after 30 overs to reach the highest ODI score the Kiwis have ever conceded.
