Women clinch series.

England women completed a 3-1 one-day international series victory over New Zealand with a six-wicket win at the Bert Sutcliffe Oval, Lincoln, near Christchurch, yesterday.

New Zealand scored 241 for nine in their 50 overs, opener Aimee Mason reaching 67 off 92 balls. Captain Edwards led by example in England's reply, scoring 83 off 69 balls.

South Africa completed a 2-0 series success by beating Bangladesh by an innings and 205 runs on the fourth day in Chittagong yesterday.

The hosts, who had followed on in their second innings 324 runs behind, were 54 for five when play resumed. They reached 119, adding only 65 runs in 14.2 overs, Aftab Ahmed not batting having had to retire hurt in the first innings. Left-arm orthodox spin bowler Robin Peterson took a Test-best five for 33.

Cricket Kenya have appointed South African Andy Kirsten as coach. The 44-year-old, halfbrother of new India coach Gary, replaces former West Indies all-rounder Roger Harper.
