Stoke’s Danielle Wyatt hits unbeaten half century to clinch England T20 series win over India


Danni Wyatt put on a superb performance as she led her England team past India to seal the Women’s T20 series with a game still to go.

Wyatt hit 64 not out, from 55 with five balls to spare. The batter, from Stoke-on-Trent, hit 35 runs from 34 balls in the first match that helped England to a 41-run win.

It was Wyatt’s fourth T20 fifty and she has shown how much she has grown in front of the crease as she worked the ball around nicely and took her time to hit six fours in her 55 balls.

England are heading to Sri Lanka next Saturday for their first of three ODIs after the last game against India tomorrow; which could be India’s second whitewash in as many test, as they lost to New Zealand 3-0 in their last series.

Wyatt said:“It’s great to win the series. It says a lot about us given the result in the ODI series and we’re really proud of how we’ve bounced back.

“It hasn’t been easy at all but we’ve shown a lot of character and resilience and we continued that today. The bowlers were brilliant – Katherine Brunt again stood up, and Laura Marsh and Linsey Smith were great again.

“I’m proud to have taken the team to the win. I’ve been challenged to finish more games off for England so it’s a great feeling to do that. It’s right up there next to my innings in Mumbai.

“We need to continue putting in performances like this, starting off with the final T20 on Saturday and then throughout the Sri Lanka series.”
