  1. Farewell

    So now we know the semi-final line-up at the Women's World Cup. England, having lost their opening match against India, have won the group and will play South Africa at Bristol on Tuesday.

    Defending champions Australia, who lost to England by three runs in the group matches, beat South Africa by 59 runs today and will face India at Derby on Thursday.

    There will be live audio and text commentary, plus in-play clips on both matches so please join the team for those if you can. The England-South Africa second Test coverage continues, the tourists in a strong position at Trent Bridge, but, from me, cheerio now.

  2. Post update

    England's power hitter Nat Sciver made a second ball duck today but she shone with the ball instead, claiming remarkable figures of 3-3 from four overs.

    This is the closest India could get to a final in a long time and I think they will be hungry against Australia at Derby. If Meg Lanning is not ready or off I think India will fancy it.

    Clearly England are favourites for the semi-final but South Africa will bring their spinners out - players like Nat Sciver like pace on the ball - and if the South Africans turn it it will be the spinners who decide it. South Africa have beaten England in recent times and on any day they can put their names in the hat.

  5. Captain's review

    More from England skipper Heather Knight: "They bowled really well and made it hard to score. It was the third game on that wicket and it was really dry, the little cameo from Marsh and Gunn was good to see as well."

  6. Captain's review

    West Indies skipper Stafanie Taylor is asked why she did not opt for a review when replays showed the ball was heading down the legside: "I was happy to trust my partner but when I went upstairs and had a look I wanted to kill her."

    (Taylor IS smiling when saying this, I should point out)

  7. Post update

    Heather Knight is asked a question supplied by the viewers and it is how much has home advantage helped? "The support has been brilliant, particularly here at Bristol, and it really does make a difference. Hopefully we will get a lot of people here on Tuesday for the semi-final and go from there."

  8. Post update

    Here's the final group table after the round-robin matches, England finishing top on run-rate from Australia, having suffered just that one defeat, the 35-run reverse on the opening day of the tournament in Derby last month.

  10. Captain's review

    England captain Heather Knight, named Player of the Match after her 67: "We wanted to put in a really professional performance and there was that carrot of staying here for the semi-final where we like playing."

    Emphatic victory for England and they can feel proud of the way they have bounced back since that defeat against India.


    Knight to Knight and it is goodnight West Indies as England wrap up another victory to finish top of the group. The West Indies finish on 128-9, Nat Sciver finishing with 3-3 from four overs.

  13. Australia beat South Africa

    Australia have beaten South Africa by 59 runs after bowling them out for 210 at Taunton and they will finish second in the group.

  14. WICKET

    Mohammed lbw b Shrubsole 14 (WI 128-9)

    This looked leg side but it is umpire's call on the leg stump and there are no reviews in any case. It is the seventh lbw of the innings and that is a new record.

  15. WI 127-8

    Mohammed 14, Kyshona 12

    Knight again and just the one run again. Uncle Albert has seen enough, a grey-bearded gentleman makes his way niftily through the seats towards the exit.

  16. WI 126-8

    The combative Anya Shrubsole does not look like a woman who will concede boundaries gladly - or suffer fools for that matter - and just one single transpires. Three overs left and will the West Indies bat through?

  17. WI 125-8

    Mohammed 14, Kyshona 10

    Captain Knight back in the attack and the left-handed Mohammed sweeps and cuts her way to two boundaries. They need a few more though, one off every ball in fact, because the required rate is 24.

  18. WI 117-8

    The Windies team are huddle under towels and hoodies and anything to hand as they watch on from the bench. Kyshona Knight strikes a stylish boundary off Gunn, like a bullet from a...sorry, it has been a long day.

  19. WI 112-8

    Target 221

    The DL score should by 198 and it is someway short of that. We still have a little mizzle and generally gloomy conditions but I don't think we will have a stoppage. West Indies are not going to win this, I can confidently predict that. Mohammed collects a rare boundary, however, with a thick edge off Hartley to dent the slow left-armer's figures a fraction. They are still impressive, 1-25 from her allocation of 10.

  20. WI 108-8

    It is largely gun-barrel straight from Gunn but it is by no means at the speed of a gun. They can't get the ball away though and yet again it is only a single that occurs.
