Taylor finds form

Taylor reached 4,000 ODI runs during her inningsAfter scoring a measly 13 in three innings in India and 27 in the opening two games of the series, Taylor's position at three was starting to come under pressure.As she walked to the crease, former England captain Charlotte Edwards said England would be "desperate" for their wicketkeeper to get among the runs. Any questions about her place in the side were answered today with a beautifully made 70 off 61 balls. It comes at the right time for her and England ahead of the upcoming Ashes series. Sweeps behind square on both sides of the wicket were a prominent factor throughout her knock, as was hard running between the wickets. After Taylor fell, Heather Knight (40 off 19 balls) took control of the innings. The captain came in slightly later than usual as a result of Danni Wyatt being promoted and showed an ability to be a finisher for England with two massive maximums. More to follow.
