Monday 27th June 2016

Women

Kent opener Tammy Beaumont became the first Englishwoman to hit consecutive one-day international centuries with a fine unbeaten 168 to seal a 3-0 series win against Pakistan in Taunton.

After the hosts won the toss and batted first, Lauren Winfield dominated the opening stand with 43 of a 59-run partnership before two century partnerships put the game beyond the tourists.

Beaumont added 166 runs with Georgia Elwiss (77) in 26.3 overs before Nat Sciver (48) and Heather Knight (12 not out) hit sixes to accelerate the scoring.

Beaumont surpassed Robin Smith’s 167 not out to become the highest score in ODIs by an English cricketer in England.

Only county colleague Charlotte Edwards has a higher ODI score with 173 not out against Ireland in the World Cup

In reply, Kent’s Laura Marsh took 3/29 in ten overs, picking up the key wickets of Pakistan’s two top scorers Maroof and Nawaz in the middle overs.

Anya Shrubsole gave England a strong start, removing both openers to reduced Pakistan to 19 for two and new-ball partner Katherine Brunt took another two, including captain Sana Mir.

After a spell of spin at both ends with Marsh and left-armer Alex Hartley of Middlesex, Brunt returned to mop up three tailenders to complete a five-wicket haul.

Beaumont picked up the player of the match award as England won the Royal London One-Day International series 3-0.
