    A sign of things to come, or are England set to spoil the Windian party?

    Phil Dawkes is just about to bring you the early stages of that one. I'll see you later.

    So, the Windies have won it, lifting the World T20 trophy for the first time. They did it by recording their highest ever chase in a T20 international, and you can watch the best bits from that right here.

    Stafanie Taylor lifts the trophy, the players cheer, fireworks and smoke shoot into the Kolkata sky. West Indies are the 2016 Women's World Twenty20 champions.

    Windies skipper Stafanie Taylor: "It's fantastic the men were behind us, Sammy sent me a text this morning saying 'girls you are going to do it'.

    "We didn't get the start we wanted with the ball, but the batting did it for us."

    West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor is named player of the tournament. She's scored 246 runs and taken eight wickets.

    Hayley Matthews is player of the match. She's getting quite an ovation.

    Australia captain Meg Lanning: "Full credit to West Indies, they outplayed us. They blew us away with the bat.

    "We thought we were a little short, we didn't quite finish how we wanted to. I thought if we bowled well we could defend it.

    "We've had a tough road into this. We built well throughout and I'm proud of the effort everyone put in."

    Australia have been asked to collect their runners-up medals in alphabetical order. That's just what you need after losing a final, a brain-teasing team-building exercise...

    Presentations coming up. There's quite a crew down there dishing out the gongs. Sourav Ganguly, for one...

  12. The winning moment

    Remember what I said about Dottin throwing he bat in the air at the moment the match was won? See if you can spot it in the clip here. All the highlights can be found at the top of the page.

    "The Windies have brought power into this tournament. Hayley Matthews running down the wicket and hitting Ellyse Perry for six was probably the moment of the tournament."

    "This has been a great advert for the women's game. We've had a wicket that has been fabulous for Twenty20 cricket."

    Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

    "The best team have won. West Indies have played solid cricket. The one game they lost went right down to the line. The key is the captain, Taylor. She is the lead run-scorer and is in with the wickets. It allows others to chip in around her, with that anchor. They have discipline in their game now. If this team can tighten up with the bowling and handle pressure they will be a dangerous force going forward."

    I've just seen a picture of the moment the Windies sealed victory. Deandra Dottin threw her bat so high, Tim Peake could have caught it. An Australian fielder could have got a bat to the head to go with the disappointment of losing in a final.

    West Indies' Britney Cooper: "No way were Australia going to come back and win that game. We told the girls at half-time that we thought Australia were about 17 runs short. It is a batting pitch so we stayed steady and applied ourselves."
