Cricket: White Ferns win final ODI against England

An unbeaten century by Sophie Devine has steered the White Ferns to a four-wicket win over England in the final women's cricket ODI match in Leicester.

Devine blasted 117, smashing 12 fours and two sixes, to lead New Zealand to victory with five overs to spare.

"We've been disappointed with the way we have batted, but we have really knuckled down," Devine said after the match.

"I knew I had to dig in and bat through today, and it wasn't an easy pitch to bat on."

England won the toss and elected to bat first. The hosts started well and made it to104 before it quickly turned to custard, as they lost all 10 wickets for 115 runs, to be bowled out for 219.

Spin bowler Leigh Kasperek picked up a career-best five wickets for 39 runs.

New Zealand got off to a shaky start with the bat, before Devine anchored the Kiwi chase to give the White Ferns a consolation win in a series that England have taken 2-1.
