England beat NZ, win ICC Women's World Cup for third time

#1
Sydney (PTI): England clinched their third World Cup title after beating New Zealand by four wickets in a low scoring final at the North Sydney Oval here on Sunday.

Riding on the four-wicket haul of all-rounder Nicky Shaw, England bundled out New Zealand for 166 in 47.2 overs, before achieving the target with 23 balls to spare.

Shaw, who became the first bowler to scalp four wickets in the final of an Women's World Cup, creditably capitalised on morning weather condition to stiffle the opponent batting line-up and reached her best ODI figure of 4-34. Earlier, New Zealand skipper Haidee Tiffen won the toss and elected to bat first.

The black caps suffered an early jolt when opener Kate Pulford (8) was dismissed cheaply by England pacer Isa Guha on the eighth over.

Both the England opening bowlers, Katherine Brunt and Isa Guha extracted early morning movement to baffle the batters who were failing to middle the ball with alarming regularity.

Nicky came in action as the first-change bowler for England and soon struck by sending back Suzie Bates (2) and Amy Satterthwaite (0) in the twelfth over, leaving New Zealand struggling at 49 for three.
