Heather Knight top-scored for England against New Zealand on Thursday, and this montage of every run of her knock of 89 is a testament to the class of the home skipper. Knight’s knock was essential in dragging England to 241 all out as they looked to set a defendable target despite some poor shots and ill-timed setbacks. Although it seemed slightly slim, the total was enough in the end as New Zealand faltered to 211 all out thanks to the excellent Katherine Brunt and Nat Sciver. England now lead the five-match ODI series 1-0.
Crucial from the skipper yesterday!
