England win in vain

Mumbai, Feb 13, 2013, PTI:

Defending champions England earned a hard-fought 15-run victory over New Zealand in their inconsequential Super Six match at the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup here on Wednesday.

England and last edition’s runners-up New Zealand were knocked out of the tournament after West Indies upstaged Australia in an earlier match.

With the current match rendered inconsequential, England and New Zealand will now be pitted for a third place play-off.

In a match that almost seemed to be a rehearsal for the third place play off on Friday, chasing England’s 266 for six, New Zealand were guided by skipper Suzie Bates (79) and vice-captain Amy Satterthwaite (103), but the team from Down Under could manage only 251 for nine.
