5.27 pm Well that was fairly one-sided. The Phoenix see their undefeated mark go up in smoke. Invincibles victory now puts them level on points in second place alongside the Phoenix on six points after four matches.

Alice Capsey is the Match Hero: "It was a big game for us. To come out here and get a dominant win was amazing. I think we were just trying to keep it really simple, bowl full and straight at the stumps. If they miss, we hit. The fielders were amazing. They backed us up. We felt really good and the energy continued throughout the 100 balls. I enjoy coming in after Lauren and Bates. They calm our nerves and really set us up today. I have the freedom to hit the ball as hard as possible, but play with sensible risk. The backing I've got at the moment is quite amazing."

That's it for our coverage from this match. On behalf of Deiva Muthu, I'm Peter Della Penna. Flip over to the coverage of the second half of today's doubleheader between the respective men's sides as Andrew Miller gets things underway.

Arlott to D van Niekerk, 1 leg bye

full on middle and leg, goes to heave this into the leg side and misses, huge lbw appeal denied as the ball caroms to backward point for a run. Review called for immediately in the field. Ball-tracking shows this ball sailing well past leg stump. Review lost.

Arlott to D van Niekerk, no run

edge! Looked like it carried too for a dropped chance. Full on fifth stump, goes to drive, toe edge knuckles to the keeper's left. She's wrong-footed but stabs a left hand out at the ball. It carried but doesn't stick. In and out.
