New Zealand v England: Tourists seal series win with victory in second ODI


In the second one-day international at Hamilton’s Seddon Park, Tammy Beaumont’s brilliant 81-run knock propelled England to a commanding 56-run win over New Zealand, securing a series win for the visitors.

Beaumont’s fluent innings, supported by captain Heather Knight’s solid partnership, laid a strong foundation for England’s innings. Despite a middle-order collapse, Amy Jones’ quickfire 48 ensured England posted a competitive total of 252.

New Zealand fought back with a resilient partnership between Brooke Halliday and Izzy Gaze, but England’s disciplined bowling, led by Nat Sciver-Brunt, halted their momentum. The hosts were eventually bowled out for 196, giving England an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.

Beaumont’s stellar performance and Jones’ rescue act highlighted England’s ability to win under pressure. Despite batting collapses, the visitors displayed clinical execution, capitalizing on key moments to secure victory.

In post-match reactions, Beaumont expressed frustration at missing out on a century, while Knight praised the team’s depth and resilience. New Zealand captain Amelia Kerr acknowledged the positives in her team’s performance, despite another tough loss.

As England aim for a clean sweep in the third ODI, their ability to handle pressure situations and capitalize on opportunities continues to shine, reaffirming their dominance in the series.
