England women & Anya Shrubsole

Anya Shrubsole celebrates trapping Frances Mackay lbw en route to outstanding figures of 2-7 from four overs in the fifth Twenty20 international, to finish as the series' highest wicket-taker with 10

England women completed a 4-0 series victory over New Zealand after winning the fifth and final Twenty20 at Invercargill by five wickets.

Twenty-four hours after rain forced the fourth T20 to be abandoned, England captain Charlotte Edwards won the toss and elected to bowl first with instant results.

Anya Shrubsole, the success story of the tour so far, trapped the dangerous Frances Mackay lbw with only the third ball of the innings.

The Somerset seamer struck again at the start of the fifth over to dismiss New Zealand captain Suzie Bates, with Jenny Gunn taking the catch.

That wicket - Shrubsole finished with 2-7 from four overs - took her tally this series to 10.

New Zealand steadily regrouped through a 50-run stand between Sara McGlashan and Amy Satterthwaite, who scored at a run-a-ball.

Georgia Elwiss broke the partnership at the end of the 13th over by bowling Satterthwaite before Laura Marsh accounted for McGlashan six balls later to leave the hosts 79 for four.

There were further wickets for Arran Brindle and Elwiss as England's bowlers remained disciplined at the death, conceding no boundaries in the final six overs as New Zealand finished on 109 for six.

England's successful chase was built around four innings of 20-something that saw the tourists home with seven balls remaining.

After Edwards was pinned in front for just three, Sarah Taylor and Marsh joined forces and brought up England's 50 in just 42 balls - 20 deliveries quicker than New Zealand managed earlier.

Following some enterprising batting during the first powerplay, runs dried up when the fielding restrictions were lifted and wickets duly tumbled - four for just 11 runs.

Taylor, who made 24 from just 17 balls, went first, caught by Rachel Candy off Morna Nielsen, who then castled Marsh.

The same bowler then picked up the scalps of Lydia Greenway and Tammy Beaumont in quick time to finish with outstanding figures of 4-10.

With England rocking on 61 for five, New Zealand had scent of a first victory but the experienced England pair of Jenny Gunn and Brindle ensured the hosts would remain winless.

Brindle finished unbeaten on 23 - one more than Gunn, who scored at a run-a-ball.
