Beaumont becomes the handiest batter who appeared to have located any rhythm, establishing the boundary continuously at some stage in the first 20 overs.
Knight, promoted up to No three in the location of the injured Sarah Taylor, shared a sixty-five-run second-wicket partnership with the opener before miscuing spinner Ashleigh Gardner to mid-off to go away for 17. Getting in on the pitch regarded an increasing number of hard as Nat Sciver (15), Fran Wilson (8), and Danni Wyatt (25) all failed to kick on. However, Beaumont stored her head to reach her 6th ODI hundred in an innings that included 11 fours and forty singles up to that point.

Australia’s reaction commenced disastrously as Nicole Bolton’s flash at an extensive delivery from Kate Cross saw the Southern Stars’ opener caught at the back of with the aid of Jones – surpassed the wicketkeeping gloves for the suit.
An off-color Anya Shrubsole noticed the ball struck straight again beyond her by Alyssa Healy (9) for four, after which sent down two wides. Still, the seamer claimed her revenge as the Australian opener clipped the ball instantly to Wyatt at a backward point. England believed they need to have had a third wicket inside the fourth over whilst Jones’ speedy glovework seemed to have accounted for Perry on 4 after Cross beat the batter at the out of doors edge. However, the 1/3 umpire decided the Australian got the slightest part of her foot in the back of the line.
