    42.5 Punam has asked for a review but the umpire says sorry, you took too long. Do England have wink of an opportunity? This was the wrong shot. Length ball sliding in from wide of the crease, Punam plays all around the delivery. Looked to work it square when he could've played in down the ground. Hit on the knee roll. That would've gone on to hit the stumps. Has she done enough though? 191/4
    1.4 a World Cup that began with promise has ended in a whimper. This was a length ball angling away, looked like it kept a touch low but Mandhana was a dead duck as she played outside the line. The ball sneaked through the gap between bat and pad to crash into the stumps. Beauty of a delivery from Brunt. She's pumped. 5/1
    12.1 absolute hara-kiri. What is happening? Mithali has been run-out. What's bizarre is she gave up halfway through the run. Raut nudged this towards short midwicket and took off. Mithali responded for the single, which is why it was all the more astonishing that she didn't even try to dive. Injury perhaps? We'll find out later. For now, India have lost their second wicket. Huge, huge moment in the match. It was almost as if Mithali didn't expect the throw to come to the striker's end. 43/2
    33.3 swung away to leg... but she's picked out deep backward square! Beaumont stayed low and held a pressure catch to remove Harmanpreet, and England believe again! Hartley is the bowler, she's claimed some important wickets in this tournament - but how big will that one be? It's a shot Harmanpreet likes to play but this time she sent it straight down the throat of the fielder 138/3
    44.4 cross-batted slog, straight into the hands of midwicket! India are crumbling under pressure. This was slower and fuller outside off, looked to fetch it from way outside off in hope of clearing deep midwicket, and the top-edge settled under Nat Sciver who made no mistake. How the game has turned 200/6
    43.3 looks to sweep, but went far too across. Played too early as the ball deflected off her glove onto the stumps. This is not over yet. This one drifted back in quite a bit. Pressure telling on Verma, who should've have been sent in at such a vital stage ahead of the more accomplished Deepti. England very much in this. 196/5
    48.1 Five wickets for Anya Shrubsole! Deepti walks to the leg side to swing this away but the change in pace meant she skewed it off the top part of the bat to midwicket. As simple as they come. England edge closer to the World Cup title 218/9
    44.6 right through Goswami's defence. This is a full-length delivery that comes back in a long way, Goswami is late to get down to the delivery, also played outside the line and heard the stumps rattling. 201/7
    47.3 Oh, dear. Shikha, what have you done? Hit this short ball straight to point, set off for a run but was halfway down the pitch when she was sent back. There was never a run there. The throw wasn't the best but Sarah Taylor did superbly well to collect it. She was off balance but held her nerve to whip the bails off. Shikha wasn't even in the frame 218/8

    48.4 this is why she was so calm! England have a fourth World Cup title! Poonam plays down the wrong line. The full and straight delivery comes back in furiously from wide of the crease, she not only played outside the line but also was late on the shot. Heard the off stump take a wickets. Six wickets for Shrubsole. Superhuman effort. 219/10
