KATIE George took three wickets as England Women defeated New Zealand by 123 runs at Derby to secure victory in their one-day international series with a game to spare.

The all-rounder, from Romsey, bounced back from conceding three fours in her first over to finish with 3-36 from seven.

New Southern Vipers signing Tammy Beaumont made 67 and Katie was run out for nine as England posted 241.

Then Katie starred with the ball as New Zealand were skittled for 118.

She gained her revenge when Sophie Devine hit a full toss straight to extra cover in her second over.

Then the 19 year-old bowled left-hander Amy Satterthwaite before a wicket for Katherine Brunt reduced the Kiwis to 36-3.

Southern Vipers star Suzie Bates, the New Zealand captain, top scored with 24 before the tourists were bowled out in 38 overs.

The third and final match of the series is at Grace Road, Leicester tomorrow.

Three days earlier, Katie took a wicket on her one-day international debut as England began their series against New Zealand with a comprehensive win at Headingley.

The all-rounder from Romsey completed a 142-run victory when she trapped number 11 Holly Huddlestone lbw.

She had not been needed to bat as England piled up 290-5.

Southern Viper Tammy Beaumount (40) shared an opening partnership of 111 with Amy Jones (63) and captain Heather Knight also hit 63, before the Kiwis were bowled out for 148 in reply.

Left-armer Katie’s opening spell (4-0-27-0) ended when she was hit for successive boundaries by Sophie Devine, who top scored for the tourists with 33 (43 balls).

But she caught her Hampshire and Southern Vipers teammate Suzie Bates, the New Zealand captain, for 28 and was brought back into the attack with New Zealand 137-8.

Katie ended the innings midway through her next over and after finishing with figures of 5.3-0-34-1 was presented with her England ODI cap by former England captain Charlotte Edwards, Hampshire’s director of women’s cricket.

She tweeted: “A genuine honour and privilege to receive my odi cap from lottie! A awesome result and delighted to get my first wicket.”

A week earlier, 19 year-old Katie finished with 1-31 as England won their T20 tri-series final against New Zealand at Chelmsford.
