Sophie Devine's fifth ODI century helped the WHITE FERNS secure a satisfying four-wicket victory over England in the final ODI at Leicester.
Devine struck 12 fours and two sixes as her side reached the 220-run target in the 45th over of the third ODI.
Earlier, career-best bowling figures by Leigh Kasperek (5-39) and Hayley Jensen (2-26) helped dismiss England for 219 in the 48th over.
