  • New Zealand's Suzie Bates celebrates with Amy Satterthwaite after reaching her century against Sri Lanka

Unbeaten century by Suzy Bates and a five-wicket haul by Holly Huddlestone helped Black Caps thrash Sri Lanka by nine wickets in their Women's World Cup match at Bristol, Samaa reported. In New Zealand's innings, the early dismissal of Rachel Priest (2) would have given some hope to the Sri Lankans, but Bates and Satterthwaite had other plans, combining caution with aggression to chip away at the target. Katey Martin dropped opener Chamari Polgampala on 13 off Sophie Devine's bowling in the 11th over, but shortly after Amelia Kerr was introduced into the attack and made the breakthrough. That brought the unsafe Chamari Athapaththu to the crease, and alongside Polgampala (who brought up 1,000 career ODI runs during her innings of 49), she gave Sri Lanka a platform to post a big total at 141 for one - reaching her half-century with a attractive inside-out cover drive.

The 29-year-old fast bowler from Auckland was later adjudged player of the match. The opening match at Bristol Country Ground will be between the New Zealand Women team and the Sri Lankan Women team.
