Charlotte Edwards played herself into form ahead of England Women's ODI series with India Women by scoring an unbeaten 72 as her side comfortably beat Ireland Women at Loughborough.

England captain Edwards dominated the Ireland attack, hitting eight boundaries in a 61-ball innings. She and Aran Brindle added 53 together as England posted 136 for 4.

Danni Wyatt then set England on the path to victory by removing both Ireland openers caught by Jenny Gunn after a 47 stand for the first wicket. From 55 for 2, Ireland only managed 30 more runs falling a long way short of their target.

"It was really nice to be back playing together," Edwards said. "We were a little bit rusty in the field but that's understandable given we haven't had that much cricket due to the rain. We've got another days training then we'll be looking forward to getting the India series underway on Tuesday."

England Women play the first match of the T20 Series against India at Canterbury on Tuesday June 26.
