Charlotte Edwards had to leave the pitch during Bangladesh’s innings after being hit in the face while fielding, but not before she made 80 from 69 balls in a total of 137-5.  Edwards’ tally brought her past the 2000-mark to 2055 runs in international T20 cricket.

Danielle Hazell (3-4) and Natalie Sciver (3-10) also led an England team that limited Bangledesh to 58-9.

England face Sri Lanka on Sunday (30 March) in their final group match.
