    It took just 26.3 overs for the New Zealanders to reach 133-3, with Rachel Priest (52) and captain Suzie Bates (30) ensuring their would be no hiccups in a 72-run opening stand.

    All seven of New Zealand's bowlers claimed a wicket, with seamer Anna Peterson (2-14 off six overs) recording the best figures.
