An incredible century by top-order batter Sophia Dunkley recently powered England Women to an emphatic 114-run win over South Africa Women in the second ODI at the County Ground in Bristol. Slamming a 93-ball 107, Dunkley became the first black woman to hit an international ton for England. The hosts successfully defended a mammoth 337, bowling out SA for 223.
Expectations were naturally on the higher side from Dunkley in the Commonwealth Games clash against Sri Lanka but the opener failed to deliver the goods, bowled by Oshadi Ranasinghe who has picked two wickets as the scoreboard read 63/3 at the halfway mark.
After 9 overs,
They need 48 runs in 66 balls.
