squeezes the pads from round the wicket, and that's the end of that! Shaping into the left-hander, struck in front of middle and leg. England win by 42 runs to get their campaign firmly back on track
10.10pm So, that's the end of that. It's been a comprehensive performance from England, who are closing in on qualification after their sticky start. From Matt and myself, goodnight!
Heather Knight is Player of the Match for her 62 from 47 balls. "I'll be disappointed to leave Canberra, I thought one of the spinners would get the match award but delighted with another win. I'm enjoying batting further up the order, and shaping the innings for the team. I try to be there at the end and score at a decent strike rate. It's a different venue at Sydney, a slower pitch will present different challenges."
10.05pm So, a routine but very professional performance from England. Shrubsole was superb with the new and old ball, but it was spin wot won it tonight, five wickets between them, including 3 for 15 from the leggie Sarah Glenn, and two for the veteran Ecclestone ... though how anyone can be a veteran at 20 is beyond me. Heather Knight's fifty was the mainstay of their batting.
crashed hard to the leg side, only 11 a ball needed, but that's not stopping Shrubsole who pounces with glee at mid-on
heaved out to the leg side, a slightly dawdly single... might have been tight with a direct hit!
tighter line, can't work this one away as Brunt gathers in her followthrough
sliding past the pads
caught and bowled first ball! That's Shrubsole's 100th T20I wicket, and she had to work for it, changing direction in her followthrough to cling onto a looping return poke. Another fine day's work from the 2017 World Cup heroine
wicket to wicket, and hits the wicket! Can't argue with that from Shrubsole, a slower ball, slightly back of a length, eludes an ambitious slog across the line, and a very fine battling innings is over
tucked off the toes to the on side
saad abbas: "Oh Aliya where were you hiding ?" She's been found now, at least
attempted sweep, flicks the pad to short fine leg
slightly offline this time
wide line, slashed with intent through third man! Excellent defiance
heaved with intent, up and over the leg side
skids through faster and flatter, superb variation. Saved by an inside-edge, but that's a mighty fine spell. EDIT: Nope, that was pad first, a review would have been out!
extra bounce from a tight line, Anwer can't work it off her hip
flicked out to square leg, so little for Pakistan to work with here
whittled out to deep midwicket
leaning onto the front foot, solid in defence
tossed up, luring the loose slog-sweep, skidding through everything, and back goes the middle stump! Ecclestone starts her final over with intent
under-edged past the stumps! Brunt is seething, that was an excellent back-of-the-hander, utterly deceived on the wild pull
rolls the fingers on a full-length cutter, pushed to cover
