Monday 24 October 2011
At least one England cricket team is winning one-day internationals at the moment. Captain Charlotte Edwards hit a century as she led England's women cricketers to a 96-run win which sealed a series victory over South Africa.
Edwards' 138 and a knock of 77 from Sarah Taylor helped England to 315 for 6 in the second ODI in Potchefstroom. South Africa were all out for 219 in 47.3 overs in response with Dane van Niekerk top scoring on 44. The decisive victory gives England's women an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
