The Meerkat Match Hero is Phoebe Litchfield: "So glad we got it done, not the most fluent innings, but a team effort. A dream come true to play here, so to be on the winning side is special. I'm not the biggest hitter so try to hit different pockets on the field. Bess hit the sixes, I just nurdle it around."

Right, the men's match is coming up shortly. Matt Roller is all over that. From myself and Thilak, thanks and goodnight!

5.39pm Well, that was a thriller, albeit an anticlimax at the end there. Superchargers squeak through by the skin of Tara Norris's palms.

Baz: "Rare game where the clear PotM is on the losing side. Doubt if they will give it to her though."

99
1
Dean to Cross, 1 run

skied into the covers, a simple chance to Norris... who shells it! Oh my, what a finish! That should have been 1 from 1 with a new batter on strike... but instead Cross gets away with a horrid miscue!

98
Dean to Cross, no run

fired in fuller, just beats the off stump! How did that miss!

97
4
Dean to Cross, FOUR runs

wider line, and Cross lamps surely the match-sealing boundary through point! Scores level and England's chase heroine does it again

96

Dean to Wareham, 1 run

onto the front foot, eases the single down the ground

95
4
Norris to Wareham, FOUR runs

pace off the ball, and skimmed past the cover fielder! So close to holing out, but it would have taken a blinder from Knight, stretching with an outstretched right hand. Holland sweeps round in the deep but her attempted claw-back deflects off her feet and over the rope. Crucial boundary!

94
1
Norris to Cross, 1 run

swung hard out to deep midwicket, Wareham wants two but it's just the single

93
1
Norris to Wareham, 1 run

down the pitch to meet the cross-seamer, flicked to the on-side for another single

92
1
Norris to Cross, 1 run

hacked away, off a leading edge, loops past backward point

Where's the ramp...

91
2
Norris to Cross, 2 runs

low full toss, plonked back past the bowler to long-on

Tara Norris, fresh from that dropped catch, has a chance to atone now

90
Amelia Kerr to Wareham, no run

steps across to off, but Wareham holds her nerve, dipping a well-flighted delivery under an expansive swing to leg. The pendulum swings again!

89
1
Amelia Kerr to Cross, 1 run

lands the cut this time, but straight to deep point

88
Amelia Kerr to Cross, no run

width outside off, but again Cross can't catch up with the overspin as she misses her cut

87
Amelia Kerr to Cross, no run

width, could have been there for the taking, but Cross gets in a tangle on her cut

86
1
Amelia Kerr to Wareham, 1 run

outside off, cut to backward point

21 off 15 with three wickets standing becomes 17 off 15 with four... here's Wareham

4
Filer to Wareham, FOUR runs

width, slapped, dropped! Tara Norris at backward point, perfectly placed for the miscued cut, but the ball bursts through her hands and away to the rope! Huge moment

84
1
Filer to Cross, 1 run

rushed through the pull, top-edged, but not quite enough legs to carry to deep square

83
Filer to Cross, no run

74mph, hits the pitch, rises into the hip, Cross can't do anything with that

82
1
Filer to Wareham, 1 run

hits the pitch, scuffs a pull, deep square rushes in to prevent the second

81
4
Filer to Wareham, FOUR runs

flicked off the toes, superb timing! Scorches across the turf at deep midwicket. Back-to-back boundaries to flick the momentum again!

Filer's final set. Big moment. Could go any of several ways!

Glenn to Cross, FOUR runs

bosh! Full length, and dumped back through Glenn's legs, away through long-off. That'll help!

Kate Cross. What price the ramp now?
