Nottingham Forest charged by FA for pitch invasion – The Island

p An impressive all-round bowling display by England helped them register a comfortable seven-wicket win over New Zealand and finish on top of Group B with three successive wins at the Commonwealth Games.Katherine Brunt, Issy Wong and Sarah Glenn bagged a brace each as New Zealand were restricted to 71 for 9 after opting to bat on Thursday.With both England and New Zealand having already secured their places in the semifinals of CWG 2022, the final group stage encounter had little significance apart from deciding their opponents for the last four – India or Australia.Brunt triggered New Zealand’s collapse with two strikes in her first two overs – cleaning up Sophie Devine and Amelia Kerr.

From thereon, New Zealand could never take control of their innings as Maddy Green was bowled, Wong and Glenn picked two each, and errors in running cost them a couple of more wickets to be reduced to 57 for 9 in the 15th over.A resolute last-wicket stand of 14 runs, the joint highest of the innings, between Hannah Rowe and Fran Jonas, helped New Zealand bat out their full quota of overs, even if it was to prove insignificant in the end.
