5.00pm The difference in class between both sides was very evident this afternoon. On a slow surface, West Indies conceded far too many runs to stand a chance. And then, England showed West Indies how to defend on a slow turner. They finish the group stage of this year's World Cup as table-toppers.

West Indies, on the other hand, could only muster 128 in 50 overs, far below par, albeit on a slow surface. They finish with just two wins through the tournament. Not a good day, not a good fortnight for West Indies, but as long as they go back and improve.

Heather Knight is the Player of the Match: "Really nice, wanted to put in a special performance, got a semi-final on Tuesday. A little worried, very dry wicket. managed to get a couple of partnerships together. Really have to scrap for your runs. Support has been brilliant, it makes a difference when you're playing."

Stafanie Taylor: "Well, we didn't get the start we wanted. Not consistent enough. I trusted the judgement of my partner, but when I went upstairs, I felt like I wanted to kill her (Taylor's non-review of her lbw). Our bowlers did well to restrict them to 220."
