Tammy Beaumont scored 81 to help the England women’s team seal a series-clinching 56-run win over New Zealand in the second of the three-match ODI series at Seddon Park, Hamilton on Thursday.

Heather Knight named an unchanged side to the team that secured victory in their opening ODI in Wellington.

England batted first with Beaumont’s total of 81 runs in 96 balls making a significant contribution which included a 70-run partnership with Knight.

New Zealand recovered, and after losing 6-59 which saw Jess Kerr dismiss Knight and Nat Sciver-Brunt with two slower balls, Amy Jones impressed once more, scoring 48 as Knight’s side set their hosts a target of 253 to win.
