England Women 162 for 7 (Wyatt 41) beat Pakistan Women 81 for 5 (Marsh 2 for 15) by 81 runs
Danni Wyatt top scored for England Women as completed a second comfortable victory over Pakistan in as many days with an 81-run win at Loughborough. Wyatt's 41 from 29 balls helped England to 162 for 7, which proved well out of range for Pakistan.
Wyatt's innings followed 35 from just 17 balls from Sarah Taylor, the knock contained six fours as England got off to a bright start having won the toss. Wyatt kept up the momentum with five fours of her own before Susie Rose slugged two sixes and two fours in her 15-ball 29.
In reply, Pakistan lost Nain Abidi in the first over and never gained any momentum, largely thanks to 2 for 15 from Laura Marsh.
"It was another good team performance today," player of the match Wyatt. "We got the runs on the board and put them under pressure with the ball. I was pleased to contribute and it was very satisfying to set a new highest score. We'll take momentum from these matches into the series against the West Indies."
England will play West Indies Women in a five-match NatWest Women's International T20 Series commencing at Durham on Saturday September 8.
