Captain Charlotte Edwards led the way with a half-century as England Women began their World Twenty20 campaign with a comfortable 36-run win over Bangladesh.

Having opted to bat first Edwards cashed in with 60 in 51 balls, her 11th 50 in the format, as her side posted 153 for seven in Bangalore.

Nat Sciver made the next best contribution, with 27, while Katherine Brunt and Dani Wyatt boosted the total with some brisk late scoring.

Bangladesh made their best T20 score in response but still finished well adrift on 117 for six.

Brunt began with a wicket maiden and Anya Shrubsole took two for 27 with ball in hand.

“It’s always nice to get some runs and more importantly a win,” said Edwards.

“We still have some work to do on our bowling and fielding but it’s a good start.”
