Claire Taylor scored a fiery 75 off 54 balls (11 fours) and Esha Guha claimed two wicket for just four runs off four overs as England crushed Sri Lanka by 71 runs to cement their position.


Batting first, England scored 140/7 in their 20 overs and could have gotten more, had it not been for a fine spell from medium-pacer Eshani Kaushalya, who returned figures of 4/18 off four overs. Left-arm seamer Udeshika Prabodhani claimed two wickets.


Apart from Claire Taylor, none of the other batswomen was really effective. Opener Sarah Taylor scored 24.


In reply, only one Sri Lankan crossed 20 as they ended at a poor 69/8off 20 overs.


Apart from Guha, young left-arm spinner Holly Colvin claimed two for 15. England top Pool B with four points from two games while Sri Lanka have two points from two games.
