White Ferns level series against England

6:30 am on 13 July 2010

Otago's Suzie Bates produced a superb all-round performance as the New Zealand women's cricket team levelled the one-day series against England with a four-wicket victory at Taunton.

Bates took three wickets to help restrict the hosts to 208 for 9 before striking an unbeaten 75 as she marshalled the chase and nursed her team across the line with 13 balls to spare.

The third game of the five match series is in Derby on Friday.
