Women's Academy

England Women's Academy polished off the runs required with relative easy to beat KSCA Women's in Bangalore

Captain Jenny Halstead hit an unbeaten half-century as England Women's Academy recorded a comfortable victory over KSCA women in Bangalore.

England bowled the hosts out for just 124 in 39.2 overs after asking them to bat first.

Jasmine Titmus, Izzy Westbury and Rochelle Petty took two wickets apiece to leave England chasing a relatively straightforward target.

And Halstead led England to victory with 61 not out, aided by Jo Cook’s unbeaten 32, as the visitors cruised home with 23.3 overs to spare.
