In Heather Knight’s absence through injury, Yorkshire off-spinner, Danielle Hazell, captained the side, becoming the 15th player to lead England women in ODI cricket.

Captain Heather Knight and fast bowler Katherine Brunt had been ruled-out of the third One-Day International (ODI) against Sri Lanka in Colombo today, after sustaining left hamstring and left thigh injuries respectively during the second clash between the two sides on Saturday (12th November).

Tammy Beaumont cracked 78 as England Women beat Sri Lanka by five wickets to seal a series win.

Chasing 162, Beaumont hit three sixes and seven fours in her 79-ball knock as England cantered home with more than 20 overs to spare.

Both Knight and Brunt will be reassessed ahead of the fourth and final match of the series at the R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium (RPICS) on Thursday (17th November).
