Satterthwaite century gives New Zealand some consolation

New Zealand struck back to win the third one-day international against England in Dunedin thanks to a century from Amy Satterthwaite. The result ended the tourists' run of ten matches unbeaten across all formats of the game, although they had already won the series thanks to victory in the first two games.

England were bowled out for 220 in the 48th over, Tammy Beaumont (88) and captain Heather Knight (60) again dominating the scoring with a 109-run partnership. However, the last eight wickets contributed just 80 runs as England failed to build on their good start.

The home side recovered from 15 for two and 51 for three as Satterthwaite and Amelia Kerr combined to steer the side to victory. Satterthwaite's innings included 10 fours and two sixes whilst Kerr contributed 72 not out as New Zealand cantered to victory with more than three overs to spare.

"I'm definitely frustrated but I like that we were tested," said Knight. "Obviously we want to keep winning, but we'll probably get more from this game than we will from the first two, which is a real positive with the World Cup next year."
