England beat Bangladesh to reach World Cup semi-finals

Defending champions England continued their World Cup resurgence as they beat Bangladesh by 100 runs to march into the semi-finals with their fourth successive victory. 

Sophia Dunkley offered 67 from 72 balls after a knock of 40 from Nat Sciver as England recovered from 96-4 to eventually close out on 234-6.

Bangladesh rarely threatened in reply and had their efforts with the bat stifled by three wickets apiece for Sophie Ecclestone and Charlie Dean before being bowled out for 134 after 48 overs.

It capped an impressive turnaround for England, whose semi-final hopes had looked in doubt after three consecutive defeats to begin the group phase of the competitions
