7:07pm That's all we have from our coverage tonight. See you soon!

Amy Satterthwaite: It's nice to get something positive to talk about, that's for sure. We wanted to try something with the top order and obviously it didn't work, and that's why we went back to the original combination. I think Jess bowled beautifully today, nice to see her confidently gripping the ball and get the job done. Pleased with the way Martin has come into this team.

Javeria Khan: Sloppy with our fielding, bowled well in patches. We should have restricted them to 110 the way this surface was. Happy with the intent, but still the batsmen have to bat through. It was a poor shot from me. Their bowlers extracted turn. It's altogether a different scenario when you chase and I should have taken the responsibility and batted through. We are proud of the way the girls have played in this tournament, hopefully we'll learn from our mistakes. We made mistakes, and we will make mistakes, but as long as we play, we will get exposure. We'll hold our nerves and we'll play better cricket in pressure situations.

Jess Watkin is the Player of the Match.

6:54pm Pakistan's tournament finishes with a collapse. They had New Zealand worried with their Powerplay performance in the chase, but Javeria Khan was the sole warrior, as she has been for most of the tournament. Her wicket dried the scoring rate and opened the doors further for New Zealand's three spinners to apply the squeeze. To their credit, all of Paksitan's batsmen looked like they were looking to score at every point, but New Zealand were too good.

both batsmen at the same end and Aliya will go. That's poor from Sana Mir. Length ball was sliced to sweeper's left. Aliya ran through, looked at her partner and went back for the second. Except Mir decided to stop and Aliya ran straight through without noticing it. She made her ground at the other end. The second was on
