England wrapped up the series with a comfortable six-wicket win in the second Twenty20 against New Zealand in Wellington.

After being put in, New Zealand were restricted to 123-9, with Freya Davies taking a career-best 4-23 including top-scorer Amy Sattherthwaite for 49.

England recovered from 30-2 in reply, with Tammy Beaumont making a 53-ball 63 in a stand of 83 with Heather Knight.

Amy Jones hit the winning runs as England won with 16 balls to spare.

The victory means England extend their winning run in completed T20s to 10 games, a run which started after the six-wicket defeat in their opening game of the World Cup in March 2020.

Their only defeat in the format during that time was the controversial washed-out semi-final against India.

The series concludes on Sunday (03:00 GMT). Fans will be allowed at that game after lockdown restrictions were lifted in Wellington.
