England women were captured going through their final preparations before the last series of the home summer got under way on Thursday. They are to play five One Day Internationals against the New Zealand over a period of just ten days, an excellent opportunity for futher refinements ahead of next year's 50-over World Cup. England won a tight T20 International series against the White Ferns only a week ago, winning the third game on the penultimate ball to claim a 2-1 overall victory, and will be desperate to build on that success today at the County Ground in Bristol.
