New Zealand decided to put England in to bat on the morning of the second One Day International of the five-match series, and their decision was soon vindicated as the hosts collapsed to 68-4. Amy Jones was the fourth to depart, chipping softly to midwicket off an innocuous Sophie Devine delivery. It meant that England had lost three wickets for nine runs in the 22 balls following the first powerplay, and found themselves needing some inspiration to build on their 1-0 series lead.
New Zealand on top.
