5.41pm Right, that's enough of that. Over to the men's match now, which has a rather similar jeopardy. A win for Brave, and they are closing in on the play-offs. A defeat for Fire and they are gone, gone, gone ... Peter Della Penna will bring the build-up shortly. From Miller, Valkerie and Ranjith, good night!

The Hero of the Match is Smriti Mandhana. "Definitely the girls have been brilliant in the last set of matches, proud that we will be at Lord's on 21st. We have a different match hero for every match so that says a lot. The bowlers deserve to celebrate a lot because we've won a lot of matches because of them. Luck went my way, but I kept going and didn't think about the catch dropped and the no-ball. Anya has been special, a great leader for us, clear with the plans and a great captain to play under."

5.35pm Southern Brave march straight into the final, Welsh Fire's interest in the tournament is over. Mandhana and Wyatt put this contest out of reach with a pair of belting half-centuries, and Fire never got going in reply, weighed down by the scale of their challenge, despite a trio of 30s from Smith, Redmayne and Luff. No stand-out bowlers, but none were needed. Just solid all the way through their options.
