Beaumont leads Academy to win

England Women's Academy captain Tammy Beaumont led the way with an unbeaten half-century as Pakistan women succumbed to a nine-wicket defeat in their Twenty20 tour game at Loughborough University.

Beaumont made 50 not out to build a match-winning unbroken 101-run stand with Fran Wilson as the hosts eased to a comfortable victory with six balls remaining.

Wilson added 47 to help Beaumont's team recover from the early loss of Georgia Hennessy for three in the first over in pursuit of a victory target of 101.

Sonia Odedra, Grace Gibbs and Cordelia Griffith had earlier all claimed two wickets apiece to restrict Pakistan to 100 for eight in their innings.

Opener Nahida Khan struck 20 with Nain Abidi and Bismah Maroof accumulating useful runs in the middle order before the England team hit back with wickets at regular intervals.

The second scheduled T20 game was due to take place in the afternoon but was abandoned due to rain.

England Women's Academy will take on Pakistan women in a 50-over game at Loughborough University on Saturday.
