A 69-ball 80 from Charlotte Edwards and six wickets shared between offspinner Danielle Hazell and pacer Natalie Sciver helped England Women rout Bangladesh Women by 79 runs, boosting their run rate and enhancing their chances of qualifying for the semi-finals. The loss, their second in as many games, means Bangladesh are languishing at the bottom of Group B.

England won the toss and opted to bat but suffered a few jolts early on when Sarah Taylor, Tammy Beaumont and Lydia Greenway were dismissed for single-digit scores. Edwards and Sciver then shared a 50-run fourth-wicket partnership to boost a flagging scoring rate and push England's total to a competitive 137 for 5.

Bangladesh were insipid in response, tied down by a miserly Hazell, who conceded only four runs in four overs for three wickets. Their top and middle order ate up deliveries without contributing too many runs to the score, reflected in a run rate of 2.90 at the end of their innings. After Hazell removed the top order in three of her first four overs, Sciver routed Bangladesh's middle and lower order, finishing with 3 for 10. England's dominance with the ball was evident in the fact that only three Bangladesh batsmen made double-digit scores.
