5.32 pm Mooney's unbeaten knock makes the home fans happy at Lord's. London Spirit are still in the hunt for a playoff spot after today's win. Meanwhile, Welsh Fire look like the chalk to end with the wooden spoon as they remain winless.

Beth Mooney is the Match Hero: "It was really nice being out here at Lord's. I haven't played out here before and it was nice to have the crowd support for our first home game. Our bowlers did an outstanding job. We reaped the rewards and thankfully the batters didn't have too many to chase. [Gibson] is an amazing player. She really strikes the ball cleanly. She was given a license and it was good to see her take her chance."

That's it for today's coverage of the Women's Hundred match. On behalf of Sruthi Ravindranath, I'm Peter Della Penna. Flip over to the feed of the men's match between London Spirit and Welsh Fire to catch the start of our coverage for that match with Matt Roller getting things underway.

dropped by Sutherland going back from mid-on! Flighted full on off stump, skies a heave to mid-on who backpedals and spills this chance.

She goes to turn around at the end but it goes through her fingertips trying to take an over the shoulder catch seven yards in from the rope.

Nicholas to Luff, FOUR runs

full on the legs, whipped past square leg and George's diving effort is in vain as it goes past her to the rope. She was leaning with all her body momentum to the left and the ball went to the right of her.
