Scorecard summary
Sri Lanka Women 106/9(20 overs)
England Women 109/5(17.1 overs)

8.50pm: So England get off to a winning start in Group B, seeing off Sri Lanka by five wickets with 17 balls to spare. Wickets fell at awkward moments, but Alice Capsey had ice in her veins (as well as a shiner on her cheek) to get them most of the way there. Anyway, a bumper crowd at Edgbaston has had their night's entertainment, and we'll be back for more tomorrow with a full schedule that includes India-Pakistan at the CWG and the finale of the white-ball summer for England's men. Ciao!

Athapaththu to Bouchier, no run

pushed through outside off and stabbed towards point

15.3
Athapaththu to Bouchier, no run

very full and hit on the boot, not given... and Athapaththu asks for the review. Looked pretty leg side on first glance, but they are checking the inside edge. No bat, but it pitched outside leg, so Bouchier continues

tossed up and flicked into a gap at midwicket

Athapaththu to Capsey, no run

2
Dilhari to Bouchier, 2 runs

swatted into the leg side and they hustle back for two

"No one's hit any 6s so far," notes Tautoru. "A real arm wrestle which Capsey is trying to win all by herself. (Only English player to have scored over 30.)" The 17-year-old showing her minerals, certainly
