England Women signed off from their tour of Sri Lanka with another win to make it 10 victories in a row in all formats. It’s now their fifth-best run of consecutive victories.
Half-centuries from Amy Jones and Danni Wyatt – plus a pair of rapid 40s from Nat Sciver and Tammy Beaumont – saw England put on 204/2, their second-highest T20I total and the highest ever scored in Sri Lanka.
It was a total that Sri Lanka were likely to struggle to chase and three early wickets for the visitors made it even trickier.
They eventually reached 108/6 to give England a 96-run victory. The wickets were shared around with Kate Cross picking up two.
Heather Knight: “I’ve been delighted with how ruthless we’ve been. We talked about imposing ourselves on Sri Lanka and being clinical and we’ve done that throughout the ODI and the T20I series.
“It’s been so pleasing that a number of different players have stood up at different times.
“Amy Jones has been fantastic but everyone has contributed throughout the trip and that bodes well as we look to increase competition for places and strength in depth.
“It sets us up really nicely for a massive summer. We’ve got a couple of weeks off and then we host West Indies.
“Obviously it’s great to have won 10 in a row and we want to keep that run going for as long as possible.”
