The fifth game of the five-match ODI series between England and New Zealand will be played at the St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury on Sunday, September 26.

England, led by Heather Knight, have already sealed the fate of the series after they won their fourth match at the County Ground in Derby by three wickets. New Zealand had stayed alive in the series following their three-wicket win in Leicester, but England made a strong comeback in the following match to crush their hopes.

In the previous game on Thursday, the White Ferns posted a substantial score of 244 for eight on the board. Amy Satterthwaite and Katey Martin scored half-centuries to take the visitors to a respectable score. Charlotte Dean picked up three wickets for England.

In the run-chase, Knight put her best foot forward. The England captain scored 101 runs off 107 balls with the help of 10 fours. Amy Jones, Danielle Wyatt and Lauren Winfield-Hill also made vital contributions. When Knight got out, England needed seven runs off 10 balls.

However, Anya Shrubsole smashed Leigh Kasperek for a four in the last over to help England win with three balls to spare. Hannah Rowe got four wickets for the White Ferns. In the final ODI, New Zealand will be looking to salvage some pride.
