An eighth ODI century from Tammy Beaumont led England Women to a big win in their final Royal London International against New Zealand at Canterbury on Sunday.

Beaumont scored a second ton on her home ground as the hosts romped to 347-5 – their sixth-highest ODI total – with fast-scoring cameos from Amy Jones (60), Sophia Dunkley (33*) and Danni Wyatt (43*) adding 96 in the final 10 overs.

There was still time for Kate Cross to take her 50th ODI wicket (3-44) and Heather Knight, who won the PCA MVP award, to take 3-24 as England bowled New Zealand out for just 144 in front of a bumper Canterbury crowd.
