England v New Zealand

In Taunton for a few days holiday with my youngest daughter.
We went to watch the first ODI between the England and New Zealand womens cricket teams. It was a warm and mainly sunny day.

The venue

New Zealand were batting first and were soon piling on the runs

Hours later, England looked as if they might win at 221 for 7 with Charlotte Edwards scoring well

Another boundary about to be scored

Only 7 runs required but our girls starting losing wickets fast

Yet another wicket has fallen but Katherine Brunt bravely takes us over the winning line.

The final score

Katherine Brunt gets the player of the match award for great bowling and that last winning four

A really enjoyable day that was tense at times. Cider, pasties, sunshine, lager, and fresh air in copious amounts has given us the incentive to return on Monday for the second One Day International between these teams.
