England slump to fresh defeat
One-day match, Lincoln: New Zealand Women 141-6 (39.1 overs) beat England Women 140 all out (50 overs) by 4 wickets

England's poor form at the World Series of Women's Cricket continued as they were beaten by four wickets by New Zealand.

The defeat leaves England, who have already lost to India and Australia, bottom of the table in the four-team tournament.

After winning the toss and electing to bat, England were all out for just 140.

Thirty extras helped bolster an innings in which only Clare Connor (29) caught the eye with the bat.

Emily Drumm did most of the damage for the Kiwis, claiming a trio of top-order batsmen in her three for eight from five overs.

Rebecca Rolls (41) and Michelle Lynch (29) then put on 73 for New Zealand's first wicket.

And although England enjoyed some success with a couple of wickets apiece for Lucy Pearson and Laura Harper, the result was never in doubt as New Zealand won with 11.5 overs to spare.
