New Zealand claimed a consolation 38-run win against England at Taunton as Amy Satterthwaite took the best figures in women's Twenty20 Internationals with the astonishing return of 6 for 17.

England were handily placed on 57 for 1 - chasing 151 - when Satterthwaite, who didn't play the first two matches, removed Claire Taylor. Jenny Gunn went next for 29 and the middle order resembled skittles against Satterthwaite's medium pace. Caroline Atkins was trapped in front and stand-in captain Nicki Shaw was removed for a duck as she tried to clear the infield with the run-rate climbing.

Lynsey Askew became her fifth wicket - surpassing the previous best in international Twenty20 of 4 for 9 by Gunn - but Satterthwaite wasn't finished as she also clean bowled Laura Marsh in her final over.

Satterthwaite was well supported by Nicola Browne with two wickets, including Sarah Taylor who had given England a rapid start with 23 off 16 balls. Browne also trapped Beth Morgan lbw, but by then England were already on the slide.

New Zealand's healthy total was based around a well-paced 44 from Sara McGlashan, who struck two fours and two sixes in her 36-ball innings. With Suzie Bates again exploiting the early overs, New Zealand were on track for an even more demanding target but England fought back with impressive fielding. Atkins and Lydia Greenway both held fine catches, but that was all forgotten by the time Satterthwaite had performed her heroics.
