England Women claim a second crushing victory.

England Women controlled the game as they claimed an eight wicket victory over New Zealand emerging players in the first Twenty20 warm-up match at the Bert Sutcliffe Oval today.

After electing to bat the hosts were restricted to 86 for six from their 20 overs.

Arran Brindle got the wickets falling as Anna Peterson hit to Laura Marsh at deep square in the third over. Spinners Marsh and Danielle Hazell then dominated with two wickets a piece to leave the hosts on 41 for five after 12 overs.

Kate Broadmore and Victoria Abbot bolstered the score putting on a 39-run partnership before Broadmore hit straight down Lydia Greenway's throat at deep mid-wicket.

Tamsin Beaumont and Marsh then proceeded to attack the target with a quick-fire 15 and nine respectively before Marsh was caught hitting over extra cover. After striking 15 from 15 balls Beaumont was caught wide of mid-off, but England were comfortable on 34 for two.

Sarah Taylor then knocked off the runs with Greenway. Taylor hit the boundary seven times amassing 43 runs from 24 balls as England cruised to an eight wicket victory with 44 balls to spare.

Sarah Taylor said: "It was another solid team performance out there today, everyone switched into the Twenty20 format well.
"The bowlers bowled well and there was a good energy in the field which set things up well for us.
"Personally I was really pleased to score runs and enjoyed batting with Lydia.
"We'll be looking to take this momentum into tomorrow's final warm-up game before we head up to Wellington for the first game of the series on Friday."

England will play New Zealand emerging players in a final warm up T20 tomorrow.
