New Zealand suffered a 123-run loss in their second one-day worldwide in Derby on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT), falling well short of the 242 target set by England thanks to half centuries from Tammy Beaumont (67 from 76) and Natalie Sciver (54 from 58).

England were bowled out for 241 in the 48th over with Sophie Devine, Leigh Kasperek and Jess Watkin taking 2 wickets each. Captain Suzie Bates was the highest scorer with an underwhelming 24 runs. Sophie Devine, Leigh Kasperek and Jess Watkin picked two wickets each but the bowling group as a whole fell short of striking when it mattered, and England got away, in part by being aggressive enough to rack up a score that was always hard to chase down in the second innings.

The third and final game takes place in Leicester on Saturday.
