England vs Pakistan: Sophie Ecclestone breaks record for fastest woman to 100 ODI wickets as hosts win series | cricket news

England spinner Sophie Ecclestone broke the record for the fastest woman to 100 ODI wickets as England recorded a series victory over Pakistan in the third ODI at Chelmsford.

Ecclestone reached the milestone in 64 games to equal Australian great Cathryn Fitzpatrick, but breaks the record in terms of number of innings pitched (63).

Ecclestone removed Pakistan’s Umm-e-Hani and Nashra Sandhu with consecutive deliveries to reach the 100 mark and find himself with a hat-trick, which Diana Baig denied him by blocking the third delivery.

England cruised to a resounding 178-run victory soon after, the hosts triumphing 2-0 in the three-match ODI series, adding to their whitewashed 3-0 victory in the previous T20s.

Heather’s Knight’s team earlier posted 302-5 with the bat, Nat Sciver-Brunt (124no) smashing his ninth ODI ton before Pakistan were dismissed for 124 in reply.
