Twenty20 Tri-Series: Jenny Gunn, Natalie Sciver inspire England Women

Jenny Gunn: Took 5-18 for England against New Zealand

Natalie Sciver claimed a hat-trick as England beat the White Ferns

England Women have qualified for the final of the Twenty20 Tri-Series following a 19-run win over New Zealand in Bridgetown.

Jenny Gunn led the way with five wickets, while Natalie Sciver claimed a hat-trick as England claimed a second successive victory against the Kiwis.

England had posted 125-8, with opener Danni Wyatt weighing in with 37 off 37 balls, Sciver chipping in with 23 and Holly Colvin smashing a key 16 not out off nine balls. Morna Nielsen and Sian Ruck claimed two wickets apiece for the White Ferns.

The score had looked a little way short of a winning target, though, as the New Zealand top order got off to a solid start.

However from 102-4, New Zealand lost their last six wickets for just four runs - with Gunn and Sciver doing the damage.

Gunn finished with 5-18, while Sciver claimed the scalps of Maddie Green, Erin Bermingham and Frances Mackay in successive deliveries en route to figures of 4-21.
