The Big Picture
After registering a record 121-run win over SA-W on Wednesday, EN-W would be looking to continue with the winning momentum when they take on the very opponent on June 23, 2018. It was a record-shattering day for the English Women as Heather Knight’s team achieved the feat of registering the highest ever total in Women IT20.
Tammy Beaumont (116 off 52 balls) continued his rich vein of form from the one-day internationals and smashed a swashbuckling hundred, and along with Wyatt (56 off 36 balls) helped his team to an all-conquering 3-250 in 20 overs, and on the back of an all-round bowling performance spearheaded by Katherine Brunt (2-18 in 4 overs) defended the target with ease, as SA-W crumbled to 6-129 in 20 overs, handing them their second loss for the day.

Their opponents in SA-W are coming off a rather forgetful day, as both New Zealand Women and England Women took a liking to their attack and posted record totals. While New Zealand Women posted 3-214 thanks to a pristine 124 from skipper Suzie Bates, a game they eventually lost by 66 runs, EN-W strolled their way to record 3-250 in 20 overs. As evident from the scores that the opposition posted, SA-W attack looked listless just like their batting, but the lone shining light was their skipper D van Niekerk who scored 58 and 72 respectively to give some respectability to their side’s defeat.
