England wrapped up a 3-0 clean sweep of their T20 series against New Zealand with a 32-run victory in Wellington on Sunday.

Natalie Sciver, captaining the team in place of the injured Heather Knight, took the winning wicket as England bowled out the hosts for just 96.

The visitors comfortably defended 128 for nine to complete a whitewash to follow their 2-1 win in the ODI series.

England wicketkeeper Amy Jones effected three stumpings in a superb display behind the wickets, while opening bowler Katherine Brunt was named player of the match after taking two for 19 and wrecking the home side’s top order.

The tourists struggled with the bat, scoring steadily if unspectacularly in an innings devoid of major partnerships and scores.

Number six Fran Wilson top-scored with 31 not out off 23 balls, having come to the crease at a slightly precarious 70 for four in the 12th over.
