6.28pm That's all she wrote for today. The match has been called off; West Indies women win by 19 runs via DLS method. Dottin had earlier lit up the day with a 71-ball hundred - the fastest for West Indies in Women's ODIs. If you hadn't watched that assault, do catch the highlights. That is all we have for you from this match. Thanks for reading. Goodbye and good night for now.

"I would rate it 10/10. It was a massive achievement, being my first ODI century," Dottin, the Player of the Match, says. We [Me and Stafanie Taylor] had to put together a partnership and put a good total on the board. I was just taking it easy and playing each ball on merit. The target in my mind was to stay and bat full overs. After my skipper got out, I knew I had to take over. After I scored my half-century and decided to take it up a gear. I am pretty confident and looking forward to the England game."

"I must say I am very pleased with my performance," Taylor says. It is really good to be back on track. I don't think I have been enjoying my batting in the past games. I told Deandra: 'Play in the V and just play your shots'. I felt really good in the middle. Concentration was the key for me. I am disappointed that I did not get the hundred. I have been working hard for the hundred. Deandra's hundred is a big plus."

"I think it was a lapse of planning on our part," Mir says." Dottin is a class player, and she has shots all over the ground. She has got cuts, she can hit down the ground, she has leg-side shots as well. Overall, the bowling was okay. The batting has not been up to the mark. Very important that the top order starts clicking."

6.15pm Still raining in Leicester. Nothing new to report

5.53pm The covers are back on, again. It has been that kind of a day. The par score at this point is 136. Pakistan are behind by 19 runs

Javeria Khan has played a fluent hand. Pakistan women's three leading run-getters - Bismah Maroof, Javeria and Nain Abidi - have walked the same path for close to a decade. The trio open up about personal hardships, career-altering realities, finding a friend in the captain, and the youngsters looking to make their mark in the game

Anisa Mohammed to Iram Javed, OUT

Javed hares down the track and aims to clear extra cover. She, however, can't quite meet the pitch of this flatter offbreak wide outside off. She skies it to Nation as the bat twisted in her hands. The drizzle is heavier now, and the umpires usher the players off the field

Hypocaust: "For the optimists out there: Javeria's career HS (133*) is the 3rd highest ever in a women's ODI chase. Only Meg Lanning has scored higher. She also scored 90 when Pakistan successfully chased 223 vs West Indies in 2015."
