Sophie Devine secured New Zealand's victory over Sri Lanka at the T20 Cricket World Cup with an impressive display.

New Zealand won by seven wickets, though they were made to work hard for it.

Sri Lankan captain Chamari Atapattu hit 41 off 30 balls as her side finished on 127-7.

The Black Caps looked shaky as they reached 65-2 but skipper Devine held steady as she hit 75 not out.

It continues Devine's amazing run of form of late and she now has scored five half centuries and a hundred in her last six T20 innings.
