Unbelievable knock by England batswomen that will go down in the history boooks. Tammy Beaumont's maiden T20I century powered England to a record win over South Africa.
England posted a new women's Twenty20 international record of 250 for three against South Africa.
Just hours after New Zealand had done the same thing to the Proteas at the same ground in the second match of T20 triangular series at Taunton on Wednesday.
England have finished on 250/3, breaking the world record for the highest women's T20I innings set earlier today by the @WHITE_FERNS! What a performance!— ICC (@ICC) June 20, 2018

As reported in ESPNcricinfo "We saw the Kiwi girls broke [the record] this morning," Beaumont told Sky Sports. "Robbo [Mark Robinson] told us in the pre-match chat not to try and break it, but I think a few of the girls got a bit of a challenge on. It's an incredible wicket, and we feel a bit sorry for the South Africa girls having to go two in two, but that's the way it goes in this T20 series and we've all got one of those."
