The White Ferns lost the fourth match at Lincoln by nine wickets, after losing the decisive Twenty20 match by five wickets on Tuesday.

Bowled out for just 168 on the final ball, batting first at Bert Sutcliffe Oval, England then cantered to the total for the loss of just one wicket in just 30 overs, making 136 for one.

It was a second straight bad day with the bat for the hosts, and even captain Suzie Bates failed again, out for only seven, while fellow opener Rachel Priest made just six.
