    So another day, another England hammering of New Zealand. I'll leave you with some of the best moments...

  4. 'England bowlers were exceptional'

    Player of the match Tammy Beaumont, who made 67: "I was a bit frustrated today at the total but the wicket started to deteriorate after that. New Zealand did start bowling well so we just had to stay calm."

    "The bowlers were exceptional and we want to keep putting in good performances."

  5. Should England makes changes for third ODI?

    Charlotte Edwards

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    The team for the third game depends on Anya Shrubsole's injury. If she is 100% she plays. It is still an important game.

    If she isn't 100% fit, I would keep it the same. This team has been so, so impressive and they will look to continue that.

  6. 'No excuses' for New Zealand

    New Zealand captain Suzie Bates: "We were under no illusion that England would be tough.

    "We prepared well but there are no excuses for the way we have performed so far.

    "We let ourselves down in the field and couldn't get any partnerships together.

    "We will have to look at what we are doing and find a way to get better. The girls are working hard but we have to try to take confidence into third game."

  7. How's stat?!

    TMS statistician

    That is New Zealand's fourth heaviest defeat in terms of runs.

    Three of their heaviest defeats have come in the last year.

  8. Post update

    England captain Heather Knight: "We didn't bat as well as we could have done - we were a bit stop-start. We want to be ruthless. Our bowlers, particularly the spinners, were brilliant today and made our score look very good."

    But plenty of highlights for England over the last two games - indeed, the whole summer. They began the summer with a ODI series win over South Africa, won the Twenty20 tri-series that also featured New Zealand, and have wrapped this one up with a game to spare.

    Not a lot out of the last 10 overs will have made it on to the highlights for this game.

  11. How's stat?!

    Phil Long

    TMS statistician

    New Zealand have failed to pass 150 against England this summer.

  12. Post update

    Daniel Norcross

    BBC Test Match Special

    New Zealand are so top heavy and if those players don't perform, there is nothing there.

    It is the effects of not being a fully professional outfit and not enough players playing at the highest level.

  13. 'England were relentless'

    Charlotte Edwards

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    England have been brilliant today. The way they batted and got their way up to the total was impressive.

    New Zealand struggled but England's bowlers were relentless. New Zealand could learn a lot from the way England play. They were totally outplayed.

  14. ENGLAND WIN SERIES

    That is a walloping. New Zealand never came close in either game. The series is won with a game to spare and England march on.

  15. ENGLAND WIN BY 123 RUNS

    Huddleston lbw Ecclestone 12 (NZ 118 all out)

    It's all over! Full from Ecclestone, Huddleston tries to work to leg, misses and is pinned in front - deep in her crease. Game over. England win by a mammoth 123 runs.

  16. NZ 117-9

    Georgia Elwiss gets another go. England trying to prise out this final wicket. Huddleston and Ebrahim, rather unhelpfully, not playing ball.

    Charlotte Edwards

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    Huddleston and Ebrahim are playing very nicely and showing how to play Sophie Ecclestone.

  18. NZ 116-9

    Target 242

    Sophie Ecclestone back into the attack. A rare boundary - and six off the over.

  19. Post update

    This makes pretty horrible viewing for New Zealand. They slipped from 75-3 to 83-8.
