Cricketer Katherine Sciver-Brunt helped England to a good start in the World Twenty20 in South Africa.

The Dodworth woman, 37, is now playing under her married name which she shares with wife and England team-mate Nat Sciver-Brunt.

England beat West Indies on Saturday and Ireland on Monday.

They complete their group stage games against India on Saturday and Pakistan on Tuesday.

The semi-finals are on Thursday and Friday of next week with the final on Sunday, February 26.

Katherine took one for 23 off three overs as West Indies were restricted to 135 for seven.

England chased the target with 33 balls and seven wickets left.

Against Ireland, she took one for 14 off 2.2 overs – claiming the final wicket with the catch taken by her wife.

Katherine then hit the winning runs as England chased 105 with four wickets and 34 balls remaining.
