That ends our coverage of this match, but I will be back in just over an hour for the New Zealand men's clash with South Africa. This is Avi Singh thanking you for being with us for this match. See you very soon!

England get the win fairly comfortably in the end. Suzie Bates expresses her displeasure with New Zealand's recent efforts with the bat, while Charlotte Edwards is beaming and delighted with the win and Anya Shrubsole's five-wicket bag. Shrubsole, the Player of the Match, says she just tried to bowl straight and is glad she got the rewards.
