Englishwoman Charlotte Edwards struck a brilliant century to help her side claim third place at the ICC Women's World Cup in Mumbai.

Edwards was unbeaten on 106 off 121 balls to help England chase down New Zealand's 220-8, with the victors reaching 222-6 with three overs remaining.

The opener anchored the innings brilliantly, striking 15 boundaries in her knock, and had handy contributions from Sarah Taylor (28), Lydia Greenway (31) and Arran Brindle (27) to help her in the middle.

NZ off-spinner Lucy Doolan was the pick of the bowlers, with figures of 3-50 off 10 overs, while Sian Ruck (2-20 off 10) was the only other Kiwi wicket-taker.

Earlier, the New Zealanders were guided to a 200-plus total courtesy of a superb innings from Amy Satterthwaite - who made 85 from 95 deliveries.

After coming in at 42-1, Satterthwaite was the rock in the batting line-up, hitting 11 fours before departing with the score at 184-7.

Handy knocks from Katie Perkins (20), Rachel Priest (15) and Nicola Brown (27 off 12) saw the Kiwis eclipse the 200 mark.

In the fifth-place playoff, Sri Lanka had an even performance from their batters to thank for an 88-run victory over South Africa in Cuttack.

Chamari Atapattu (52), Deepika Rasangika (43), Shashikala Siriwardene (44) and Eshani Kaushalya (43) all made runs as the Sri Lankans reached 244-7 through 50 overs.

In reply, the South Africans were bowled out for 156 in 40.1 overs with Shandre Fritz (54) the best of the bats.

Off-spinner Siriwardene finished with figures of 4-32 off 8.1 overs.
