Sarah Taylor smashed an unbeaten 93 as England Women warmed up for the must-win Ashes T20s against Australia with a 90-run victory over a Governor-General's XI in Sydney.
Taylor hammered 10 fours in her 76-ball innings as she dominated England's total of 146-5 at Drummoyne Oval - Nat Sciver the next highest scorer with 15.
England skipper Heather Knight - so dogged in batting her side to a draw in the sole Ashes Test match over the weekend with 79 not out from 220 deliveries - fell first ball on Wednesday.
But her mood improved later on as her bowlers bundled the Governor-General's XI out for just 56 - opposition skipper, Nicole Bolton, also exiting first ball after being bowled by Katherine Brunt.
Brunt, Sciver, Alex Hartley and Jenny Gunn each scooped two wickets - Gunn also contributing a run out - with the Governor-General's XI losing their final five wickets for five runs, the last four batsmen failing to score.
England trail Australia 6-4 on points in the Ashes and, barring intervention from the weather, must triumph in the three Twenty20 internationals to regain the trophy they lost on home soil in 2015.
The first T20 takes place at North Sydney Oval on Friday, before the teams move to Manuka Oval in Canberra for the final two games, on Sunday and next Tuesday.
