  1. Post update

    Right, we're out of here. Thanks for joining us.

    There's more cricket tomorrow, England men's T20 series decider against India. Join us then.

  2. Post update

    Player of the match Nat Sciver: "It was really good. I think I stole a couple of wickets.

    "Me and Heather wanted to build a partnership. I thought all the batters did really well.

    "There was chaos in the T20s. Here we get back to basics, do those for longer. Hopefully there's more to come."

  3. Post update

    England captain Heather Knight: "We were brilliant today. Amy Jones got starts against South Africa, then got out. I'm delighted she has gone on.

    "It was a perfect wicket for Georgia Elwiss. She's very accurate and makes my life very easy.

    "We want Katie George to get wickets at the top. She's still quite raw. She swings the ball at pace and is an exciting prospect for us."

    New Zealand captain Suzie Bates: "I was really pleased with how our bowlers stuck at the plans. 290 was a tough ask, but it was nice to keep them under 300.

    "The pitch got slower and I knew it would turn. We had good plans but we couldn't bat long enough.

    "It's been tough. If Sophie and I are honest, we need to kick on. We have to bat deeper. They are questions we have to ask after the game."

    Yep, England's batting was good, especially at the top of the order. For me, though, the home side outbowled the White Ferns, especially Georgia Elwiss...

    Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

    That was absolutely ruthless by England. The platform was laid by Amy Jones and Tammy Beaumont, and allowed the people below them to play their natural game.

  8. How's stat?!

    Phil Long

    TMS statistician

    England have won 11 of their last 13 ODIs against New Zealand.

  9. Post update

    New Zealand, by the way, lost all 10 wickets for 78 runs.

  10. Post update

    Henry Moeran

    BBC Test Match Special commentator

    Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine contributed just under half of the runs.

  11. England win by 142 runs

    Huddlestone lbw George 1 (NZ 148 all out)

    All over! Katie George wraps it up with her first ODI wicket, hitting the back leg of Holly Huddlestone in front of middle stump.

    That's England's biggest win in terms of runs over New Zealand. They take a 1-0 lead in the series and pick up two ICC Women's Championship points.

  12. NZ 148-9

    Holly Huddlestone is New Zealand's last line of defence and will have strike for the next over. England will fancy wrapping this up very soon.

  13. WICKET

    Tahuhu b Marsh 6 (NZ 147-9)

    Nearly home time. A pretty horrible swipe by Lea Tahuhu leaves her with her furniture rearranged. Three wickets for Laura Marsh, who has done little more than bowl straight. England on course for a big win.

  14. Post update

    Charlotte Edwards

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    The pressure will build even more for the middle order for that next game.

  15. NZ 145-8

    Replays show that the Kasperek dismissal would actually have missed the leg stump, the ball turning too much. Lea Tahuhu has joined Kate Ebrahim and Katie George is back into the attack. Excellent stroke by Tahuhu, digging out a full delivery and scooping it over mid-on for four.

    Henry Moeran

    BBC Test Match Special commentator

    England not far away now.

  17. WICKET

    Kasperek lbw Marsh 14 (NZ 137-8)

    The end is nigh. Leigh Kasperek plays a nothing shot, trying to work Laura Marsh around her front pad and is dead in front. England are two good bits of cricket from victory.

  18. NZ 132-7

    Target 291

    New Zealand may still think there is hope. Leigh Kasperek looks a cricketer of character reaching out to sweep Sophie Ecclestone to the deep mid-wicket fence. Time for a change? Maybe a bit of Katherine Brunt? The cheers inside Headingley mark England's 2-0 win against Sweden.

  19. NZ 124-7

    Target 291

    Laura Marsha has bowled a wonderful line. Off stump and just outside, flight, turning the ball back into the right-handers. Leigh Kasperek sweeps and misses. The appeal is turned down. I'm not sure why - it looks a very good shot. Ebrahim cover drives the first boundary for 10 overs.

    Charlotte Edwards

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    They need to look at their order - it's too top heavy. They need some experience in their middle order.
