KNIGHT PLEASED WITH ENGLAND’S WORLD T20 WIN


England captain Heather Knight was pleased her side beat Bangladesh by seven wickets on the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method at the Women’s World T20.

After their opener against Sri Lanka was abandoned without a ball bowled on Saturday, England won the toss and soon had Bangladesh 3-2 in St Lucia.

Debutant Kirstie Gordon took 3-16 as she help limited Bangladesh to 76-9.

Danni Wyatt fell to the first ball of the reply but England reached a revised target of 64 with 39 balls to spare.

Afterwards Plymouth’s Knight said: “Conditions were tricky with the amount of rain we’ve had, but we were just delighted to get out there and to get a game in.

“We wanted to win the game as quickly as we could, but in T20 you’re always likely to lose wickets early on.”
