3:20pm: Right, that's all from us here. Join us on Tuesday for the second WODI in Northampton!

3:08pm: Heather Knight, England captain: "It was a good toss to win. I think Kate Cross went under the radar, she really supported Mahika. And Mahika bowled some magic balls! It's quite rare to have three debutants. I thought all of them were really good. Nice for Bouch, obviously - promoted up the order and getting some time in the middle. [On rotation] We've got a big squad and Mahika is 17 as well you've got to remember that so we've got to look after her."

3:07pm: And here's Chamari Athapaththu: "Today's a little bit of a tough day in the office. T20 is a different format and this is a different format. Mahika and Kate Cross bowled very good areas early, and we were under pressure and we didn't handle that pressure in the middle. We all know we needed 250, 260 on this wicket. We have to improve our batting, especially patience is very important on these wickets. I think we can bounce back in the next game."

3:04pm: Player of the match is Mahika Gaur: "It's about just bowling your best ball for longer. I've not played much 50-over cricket but there's more in it for the bowlers because they're not going as hard at you. I think the main thing (the coaches told her) was to keep doing what I do best, swing it back in."

2:59pm: A comprehensive victory with 32 overs spare - a good response to losing the T20I series. England did not really have to get out of third gear but their three ODI debutants - Gaur (3-26), Filer (3-27 and Bouchier (17*) - have had grand days out

Athapaththu to Bouchier, FOUR runs

Bouchier strokes the winning runs! Good length, Bouchier uses her feet and punches into the covers... and gets four! Wow, she's not really tried to hit that too hard but it races away from the chasing fielders and England have won the 1st WODI by 7 wickets! England take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series

Dilhari to Knight, OUT

Gone! Well then... it looked like another wide down leg, but Knight opts to sweep for free runs and ends up gloving a loopy catch to the keeper
