9.37pm Well, that was comprehensive from England. The six-wicket win is one thing, the five overs to spare is something else. They promised "ultra-aggression" and delivered through Sophia Dunkley's maiden fifty as an England opener. Some of her top-order team-mates couldn't stay with her, but that won't bother the management. The aim was to keep going hard, and they certainly did. An honourable mention for Ayabonga Khaka, whose 3 for 13 in four overs was superb. But even they were trumped by Brunt's 4 for 15, in South Africa's under-par 111 for 9.

Valkerie's report will be up shortly, from Chelmsford, good night!

Khaka to Knight, 1 run

slower ball to finish, worked off the toes. That has been an outstanding spell from Khaka. Futile in the grander scheme, but without her this chase would be long over
