Laura Marsh claims 100th ODI wicket in comfortable win for England Women

Laura Marsh claimed her 100th one-day international wicket as England Women returned to complete a 162-run win and 4-0 whitewash over Sri Lanka in Colombo.

Having been forced into a reserve day due to heavy rain on Wednesday, England needed just 33.1 overs to skittle the hosts for 78 and complete a sixth series win on the bounce.

England had posted 240 for nine on the first day, with Nat Sciver (77) Danielle Hazell (45) and Marsh (36 not out) leading a recovery from 58 for six after three of the top six fell without scoring.

That proved to be far too much for Sri Lanka, who crumbled against the spin of the tourists.

Marsh claimed four for 21, including her 100th wicket in her 83rd match, while fellow spinner Hazell took three for 21 as only Prasadani Weerakkody offered any resistance with the bat, making 32 before being trapped in front by Alex Hartley.
