Tammy Beaumont (148) and Sarah Taylor (147) put on England’s highest-ever ODI partnership as England beat South Africa by 68 runs at Bristol in the ICC Women’s World Cup.
The pair combined to put on 275 as England reached 373-5 from their 50 overs, beating the previous record stand of 268, set by Taylor herself and Caroline Atkins in 2008.
South Africa batted well in response and made England work hard for their wickets but the run-rate proved too steep as the innings progressed and the hosts were able to make it three wins on the bounce.
England remain at Bristol ahead of their next match, on Sunday 9 July, against holders Australia.
