5.32 pm: Right, that's all for this game, but don't go too far yet. The men's teams will be facing off soon, and we're bringing you that live too. Toss in about half hour for that game. Follow it here.

Danni Wyatt: Really pleased. Sophia Dunkley came out and played really well, made it easy for me. You have to back yourself. We thought we needed to keep batting, we had plenty of time.

Duncan : "Sorry for this but two wongs don't make a wyatt. "

- I enjoyed that as much as her cover drives, Duncan.

5.27pm: Superb innings by Wyatt, who finishes on 69 off 40. Dunkley got the chase going and Stafanie contributed her bit, while Wyatt was the star. Phoenix had a good score, but Brave have chased it down in just 82 balls. Ridiculously easy, they made it look. Wyatt started slow but never looked flustered, and then unfurled all those inside out beauties to dismantle the Phoenix attack.

Wong to Wyatt, SIX runs

81
Wong to Wyatt, no run

full toss sliding down leg, she was making room, adjusted to try and flick it, but doesn't get bat on it

75
Elwiss to Wyatt, no run

pinged on the pads by a ball swinging in. Hopeful appeal but that was going down leg

74
6
Elwiss to Wyatt, SIX runs

she's cleared long-off. Intelligent shot, she knew there was no fielder back there, and so gave herself room and swatted it over mid-off. Didn't time it to perfection but didn't need to because of the placement. Got enough on it anyway to carry it just over

73
1
Elwiss to Taylor, 1 run

fuller on the stumps, comes on the front foot and flicks through square

72
1
Elwiss to Wyatt, 1 run

good length on the stumps, soft hands steer to point and they run a quick single to raise Wyatt's fifty. Sparkling innings.

71
1
Elwiss to Taylor, 1 run

back of a length on the fourth stump, goes back and pulls fiercely but without timing, the ball goes to long-on

Run a ball required now, 30 off 30.

Gordon to Wyatt, FOUR runs

moves across again, and the bowler tries to keep it close to her still, but Wyatt manufactures a straight drive. A bit sloppy from long-off allows the ball to go through. Th efielder had to run to her right, but got there, and then let it slip through her hands

nails the sweep. Wyatt's timing is sublime this innings. Didn't come down the track, but moved across, found the ball full enough, and slog-swept it sweetly over deep square leg.

63
1
Maqsood to Taylor, 1 run

coming down the track and giving herself room, but she's bowled it into the batter, who can only get a thick inside edge into midwicket

Maqsood to Wyatt, 1 run

steps out, but the loop on that ball makes it dip on her, and she can only bunt it to long-on

61

Maqsood to Taylor, 1 run

length on the stumps, punched through cover on the back foot

49 off 40 now. They have this chase in control. Can Maqsood derail that?
