Yes, New Zealand were thumped by 46 runs off the back of a ruthless display by Tammy Beaumont, whose 97 set England off to their highest T20I score (184 for 4) against the White Ferns. Yes, they were “rusty” in the words of Devine, who put down some crucial chances herself in a ragged team fielding display.
