England captain Heather Knight smashed the first century in the ongoing ICC Women’s T20 World Cup on Wednesday. This was also her maiden century in T20 internationals. Knight’s unbeaten 108 helped her side to post the biggest total (176-2) of Women’s T20 WC 2020.

After being asked to bat first by Thailand, Knight came to the middle when England were in trouble as they had lost both the openers for just 7. However, then she added an unbeaten 169-run partnership with Natalie Sciver (59).

Back to back fifties for Nat Sciver!

Third half-century in four innings.

For Thailand, only Nattaya Boochatham and Soraya Lateh were able to bag wickets. All-rounder Chanida Sutthiruang was the most expensive, giving 37 runs in 3 overs at an economy of 12.33.
