Lauren Winfield-Hill hits unbeaten hundred in England Women’s warm-up matchMay 6, 2021
Lauren Winfield-Hill struck an unbeaten hundred as England Women A ran out victors by eight wickets over an England Women XI side in a warm-up match at Loughborough.
Winfield-Hill led the way with 140no off 131 balls with 18 fours and two sixes as the ‘A’ team successfully over-hauled a score of 269-6 in the 50-over-a-side game, being played behind-closed-doors.
England Women batted first, with skipper Heather Knight top-scoring with 92 off 85 balls while Tammy Beaumont and Fran Wilson contributed 42 each. Spinner Mady Villiers returned 3-36.
England Women A made light work of the chase with Winfield-Hill to the fore and Georgia Adams continuing her fine form, by striking 54.
Danni Wyatt (2-41) took a couple of wickets but Winfield-Hill and Sophia Dunkley (40no) wrapped up the match, seeing their side to victory off just 45.2 overs with an unbroken third-wicket stand of 122.
The teams will return to Loughborough to contest a second 50-over warm-up match next Thursday with a potential follow-up match against New Zealand scheduled for later in the summer.
