England Women Go 1-0 Up At Leeds

Georgia Elwiss celebrates a wicket

None of the top seven made fewer than Sarah Taylor's 26.

New Zealand openers Devine and Suzie Bates (28) also started well, getting New Zealand to 70 without loss at the start of the 14th over before the White Ferns lost five wickets for 31 runs.

Having won the toss on a pitch that was taking a bit of turn Amy Jones and Heather Knight impressed most for the hosts, making 63 apiece as England reached 290/5. They initially consolidated while Kerr completed her spell and then pressed the accelerator with around 15 overs to go.

We'll show Thierry Henry he picked the wrong side
Thibaut Courtois will be crucial as well, with his shot stopping abilities, something that frustrated Brazil to no end last week. The Arsenal legend is No2 to Belgium coach Roberto Martinez and will be in the dugout for their semifinal against France .

Knight, who hit eight fours, and Katherine Brunt (30 not out) added 54 quick runs before Knight became Katey Martin's fourth victim behind the stumps. This is now England's highest total against New Zealand, bettering 284 for 9 made in the World Cup clash in Derby previous year. Devine survived a chance when Sciver dropped a straightforward offering at midwicket, but just when England needed a breakthrough, Devine tried to loft Georgia Elwiss over the top and found only Sophie Ecclestone. It is predicted that England Women will win this match against New Zealand Women.

This game was over long before the fall of New Zealand's eighth wicket prompted a spontaneous rendition of "football's coming home" among the Headingley crowd - a healthy 2,100 in the circumstances - and dancing among the huddle of home players in the middle. Debutant Katie George wrapped things up with her maiden ODI wicket.
