Kate Cross turned in career best bowling figures and became only the 12th woman to take a five wicket haul in a One Day International for England as she helped her country level the series at 2-2 with a deciding game on Friday night UK time.

Having not been selected in the first three matches of the series the Heywood seamer was picked to open the bowling alongside Yorkshire’s Katherine Brunt.

Cross accounted for both the White Fern openers in her opening spell of 7-1-16-2.

She then returned when Charlotte Edwards wanted wickets in the middle overs and duly obliged with another three in the space of 14 balls to finish with 10-1-24-5, her best figures in an international shirt.

New Zealand were well below par although their 168 all out owed a lot to their tail enders.

In reply England made short work of the chase with Charlotte Edwards (64*) and Sarah Taylor (89*) seeing the tourists to a nine wicket win.

Cross was named player of the match for her performance and England go into the decider full of confidence.
