S.J. Taylor 129 v South AfricaBack to boards

In one of the most memorable moments in women’s cricket history, Sarah Taylor, and opening partner Caroline Atkins, both scored magnificent centuries against South Africa as part of a 268 run opening stand, leading England to a total of 310 for 3.

At the time, it was the record for the highest stand for any wicket in a women's One-Day International.

It was the second of seven ODI centuries to date for Taylor, with her 129 coming from only 133 balls. Later that year, she became the youngest woman to 1,000 ODI runs before winning both the 50-over ICC Women’s World Cup and Women’s World Twenty20 a year later. The former was a trophy she would memorably win again at Lord’s in 2017.
