Having walked out to bat at 7/2, Knight played a captain's knock to help England post 176/2 against Thailand in a Group B match, which proved too big a total for the newbies.

The 29-year-old left-hand batter remained unbeaten on 108 off 66 (13 fours and four fours) and shared a record, unbroken stand of 169 runs for the third with Natalie Sciver (59 off 52).

This was Knight's maiden T20 century.

England then restricted Thailand to 78/7.

This was England's first win of the tournament after losing their opener against South Africa. Thailand have lost both their matches so far. They were thrashed by West Indies in the first match. Pakistan are the fifth team in the group.

Meanwhile, India will take on New Zealand in their Group A match on Thursday. India have won both their matches so far, against defending champions Australia and Bangladesh.
