That's all from our coverage of the second WODI between New Zealand Women and England Women. This is Gourav Samal singing off on behalf of my co-commentators Ayan Chatterjee and Deepak Prakash and scorer/analyst Yogesh Kumar. Thanks for joining us. Stay tuned for more cricketing updates all around the world. Good bye. Have a good day. 
Heather Knight (England Women Captain): "A hard fought win. It was a good wicket challenged us. 270 was a good score we wanted. But 250 kept us in the game. Amy has been good as she chooses the right balls and targets it when it matters. It allows us to be aggressive and pleasing to us. Good effort with the ball and pleased with the effort. We have been tested and happy to come out on top and win the series. The spin duo were outstanding to say the least. They maximised the conditions really well and happy with the win today and the series win. We were thoroughly tested by the Kiwis and now look forward to Sunday to sign things off in style."  
Amelia Kerr (New Zealand Women Captain): "Yeah, obviously another tough loss. Jess was good and there was good partnership in the end that got them to a good score. We got a start and then me and Maddy assessed pressure. Brooke and Gaze was good and they gave hope to us. Disappointing but lots of positives for us. I think we were aggressive but they played smart cricket out there did Amy and Kate. They were smart and a world class side. We were good in patches and competed well but need to do those little things better. It was a nice wicket to bowl on. Spinners got a lot of help as well. They have got a quality spin attack. Same pitch we are going to play on and let's see how we go about it." 
Tammy Beaumont (Player of the Match): "The best time to bat was the new ball. That's the perk of an opener. It got tougher as we went along. Got half century and then did not get the hundred which angered my dad. Amy Jones played a crucial knock again. Yes, we maximised the powerplay with Maia and it helped and we did well. Amy did a great job at the end and middle overs and end was great to see. Great position to be in. Good competition for places and hope to keep pushing on and doing well. It was good to be under the lid for Dean and we want to do things differently. Sophie Ecclestone did well as well. Thank You and I loved it out there."  
Player of the Match: Tammy Beaumont.   
10:25 AM IST and 5:55 PM Local Time | That's it. England Women have won the match by 56 runs and go up by 2-0 in the three match ODI series. 

After winning the toss and electing to bat first, Tammy Beaumont and Maia Boucher opened the innings for England Women. The duo added 37 runs for the first wicket before Bouchier was dismissed for 20 of 30 balls. Beaumont was then joined by skipper Heather Knight in the middle. After putting a partnership of 70 runs on the board, Knight got dismissed for 37 of 43 balls. Nat Sciver-Brunt, Alice Capsey and Danielle Wyatt couldn’t last long on the crease. England were then reduced to 166/7 in 36.1 overs when Amy Jones along with the lower order started building the innings. Amy scored 48 of 40 balls and was well supported by Sophie Ecclestone and Kate Cross, who scored 14 and 20 runs respectively to help their team post a total of 252/10 in 49 overs. Tammy Beaumont remained the only batter who completed her half-century and scored 81 of 96 balls.

44.6 S Ecclestone to F Jonas
W Appeal and up goes the finger. Fuller length angling in straight, Jonas plays all around it and gets hit on the pads. Looks OUT. Jonas reviews this in hope. Replays confirm that there is no bat involved and ball tracking confirms three reds. Jonas departs. 9 down. 
44.5 S Ecclestone to L Tahuhu
1 Short of a length around off, Tahuhu pushes it to the cover region for a single. 
Fran Jonas is the new batter on the crease.

44.4 S Ecclestone to H Rowe
W RUN OUT! Fuller length around off, Rowe swings it to short midwicket and sets off for an impossible run. Good throw from the short midwicket fielder to Sophie who whips off the bails. TV umpire has been called in and we see that the batter is short of her ground at the non-striker's end. Rowe has to depart as the 8th one goes down here. 
44.3 S Ecclestone to L Tahuhu
1 Fuller length around off, Tahuhu chips it away down to wide long-on for a single.
