5.04pm Well, it's thick and fast today. Flick over to Trent Bridge, where another rout is about to be completed... but don't stray too far, as the men's match is coming up next at Headingley!

Sampath has the stat: "Jemimah Rodrigues in all T20s in England:

11 innings, 493 runs, 70.42 average, 158.52 SR, 1 century, 3 fifties"

Rodrigues: "England is my second home, and Yorkshire, I am buying a house here! I kept it simple, it was a tough time sitting out not getting runs. Never easy when you are chasing and wickets fall, and one of them was my mistake. A matter of keeping calm and sticking to my basics. I love playing at Headingley, and the crowd was phenomenal."

"Always pressure being an overseas player, but the team feels like family."

Craig: "Innings of the tournament from Rodrigues.. extinguished the Welsh Fire with ease!"

Vrushabh Shetty: "Oh Jemimah!!!fantabulous knock!!! Superb from her.. Hope she will continue this form... ..."

4.58pm Wow! What a sensational innings from Jemimah Rodrigues, the Hundred's first Superstar! 92 not out from 43 balls, having faced four balls in the Powerplay while her team-mates tumbled to 19 for 4. Alice Davidson-Richards played a vital role with 23 not out from 28, most of them singles to keep the superstar on strike. They romped home with 15 balls to spare!

Hamza: "I thought this game was a lost cause, so I went to follow SA vs Ire instead, and now I'm regretting it!"

Macleod to Rodrigues, FOUR runs

too short, too easy! Tumbles into a wonderfully timed pull, falling away to off as the ball sails away to leg! A couple of bounces through square leg. And the Fire has been extinguished!
