Heather Knight led the England’s women cricket squad to a successful opening match in their ODI series against South Africa and will hope this form continues into Friday and Monday’s matches.

England secured a convincing five wicket win to take the series 1-0 with Emma Lamb the stand out performer, scoring her first international century.

Nat Sciver enjoyed yet another triumphant performance as she knocked 55 off just 36 balls as well as taking four wickets for 59 runs to reduce the South Africans to 218 all out.

Sciver’s teammate and now wife, the recently retired-Test cricketer Katherine Brunt also took a valuable 3/18, while spinners Charlie Dean and Sophie Ecclestone enjoyed one wicket apiece.

South Africa’s Chloe Tryon was the pick of her batters as she scored 88 off 73 but her and Laura Wolvaardt’s (43) efforts were not enough to stop England and Knight, as they cruised to victory with nearly 20 overs remaining.

Sune Luus will hope her side can bounce back from such a defeat meanwhile Heather Knight will believe this energy can inspire a series win.
