  1. Goodbye

    Thanks for joining us tonight.

    We'll have live radio coverage of West Indies v Bangladesh from 23:45 GMT. You can follow that here.

    Enjoy!

  2. Summary

    In truth that was all a bit easy for Australia.

    Beth Mooney and Alyssa Healy both scored 48 as they put on 72 for the first wicket. In truth, the Australia innings did falter somewhat to eventually see them post 165-5.

    A wicket in the first over from a horror shot, saw Pakistan on the back foot. They lost regular wickets throughout via a mixture of bad shots and good Australian fielding, particularly from Healy behind the stumps.

    In the end, Australia ran out comfortable winners by 52 runs to make a positive statement on the opening day of the tournament.

  3. Australia win by 52 runs

  4. WICKET

    Nawaz st Healy b Schutt 13 (113-8)

    This is a strange one.

    The ball from Megan Schutt keeps really low and cannons into the foot of Alyssa Healy behind the stumps. The ball ricochets off her foot onto the stumps with Sidra Nawaz well short of her group.

    That sort of sums Pakistan's fortunes up.

  5. 'Super shot' - Maroof straight drives for four

    Before Bismah Maroof got out, she looked in decent touch for Pakistan.

    This straight drive is well worth a watch.

  6. WICKET

    Maroof c Wareham b Gardner 26 (78-7)

    With that Pakistan's chances are definitely over.

    Bismah Maroof tries to open her body and go over cover but only succeeds in slicing to backward point to fall for 26.

  7. WICKET

    Aliya c Healy b Wareham 1 (Pak 74-6)

    You cannot keep Alyssa Healy out of this game.

    This is another fantastic catch from the wicketkeeper. Her glove work has been absolutely brilliant in this innings.

    Aliya Riaz tries to rock back and cut Georgia Wareham through the offside but only succeeds in getting a faint edge through to Healy.

    This is all over as a contest now.

  8. WICKET

    Dar st Healy b Wareham 4 (Pak 72-5)

    Scoreboard pressure is getting to Pakistan here.

    They're well behind the rate and that is showing in their shot selection.

    Nida Dar charges down the crease and the ball spins past the bat into Alyssa Healy's gloves who takes off the bails.

    This is all Australia.

  9. WICKET

    Javeria c Healy b Molineux 9 (Pak 64-4)

    Sophie Molineux sees Pakistan captain Javeria Khan charging down the wicket and drops the ball slightly wider.

    Javeria gets a very thin edge through to Alyssa Healy who takes a smart catch behind the stumps.

    Healy's having a very good day.

  10. WICKET

    Nahida c&b Kimmince 9 (Pak 31-3)

    What a few minutes for Delissa Kimmince!

    Nahida Khan had found it tough going, only scoring five from her first 13 balls. She'd found the boundary the ball before with a lovely steer through point for four.

    She again tries to find the boundary - this time the straight one. But Kimmince takes a good smart catch off her own bowling to end Nahida's innings.

  11. WICKET

    Omaima run out (Kimmince) 20 (Pak 27-2)

    That is a brilliant piece of fielding from Delissa Kimmince.

    Omaima Sohail had looked in good form hitting a few lovely shots through the offside.

    Her and Nahida Khan attempt a quick single but Kimmince runs in, picks up in her right hand and releases quickly. Alyssa Healy does the rest behind the stumps.

    Australia are in control here.

  12. WICKET

    Zafar b Schutt 2 (Pak 2-1)

    That is a HORRIBLE shot. It actually gets worse every time you watch it.

    Megan Schutt bowls a nice straight line that Ayesha Zafar just takes a massive swipe at.

    Zafar misses. Schutt does not. Bowled.

    Terrible start for Pakistan.

  14. Elsewhere in the world of cricket

    Sides continue to build-up to the men's ODI World Cup in England next summer.

    The second ODI between Australia and South Africa took place in Adelaide today. South Africa won the first ODI by six wickets, but Australia leveled the series with a seven-run victory today.

    Wicketkeeper Alex Carey top-scored 47 for the hosts, before Marcus Stoinis took 3-35 from his 10 overs as South Africa fell short of the 232 needed for victory.

    It is also the second ODI between Pakistan and New Zealand today. New Zealand won the first ODI as they successfully defended 266-9.

    Kane Williamson's side posted 209-9 in today's game. Sarfraz Ahmed's Pakistan successfully chased it down, mainly in part due to Fakhar Zaman's 88, with more than nine overs to spare to win by six wickets.

  15. England complete 211-run win to end losing away run

    If you're an England fan, today has been a good day.

    Joe Root's side completed a thumping 211-run victory on day four of the first Test against Sri Lanka to end their 13-match winless run away from home.

    Moeen Ali claimed 4-71 and Jack Leach 3-60, while Adil Rashid and Ben Stokes picked up a wicket each.

    Attention now turns to the second Test which starts on Wednesday. Root said it's going to be a tough job for the selectors to pick from this "fantastic" team.

  16. England's Brunt ruled out of tournament with back injury

    England have been dealt a major blow before the Women's World Twenty20 after all-rounder Katherine Brunt was ruled out of the tournament with a back injury.

    Brunt, 33, has a recurring back problem which flared up again during a warm-up game against India on Wednesday.

    She will be replaced in the England squad by Fran Wilson, a member of the World Cup-winning squad of 2017.

    Wilson is not expected to be available for England's opening match on Saturday.

  18. Pakistan need 166 to win

    Is that going to be enough for Australia?

    I think Meg Lanning's side will be slightly disappointed with that total after their fast start.

  19. WICKET

    Villani run out (Maroof) 7 (Aus 159-5)

    Suicidal running from Australia!

    Elyse Villani cuts straight to backward point and they set off for a single and there is all sorts of confusion.

    Eventually Villani gets sent back but its too late. Sidra Nawaz whips the bails off with Villani well short of her ground.

  20. WICKET

    Lanning b Aliya 41 (Aus 158-4)

    Pakistan have fought back well here after Australia's lightning start.

    Meg Lanning shifts to leg, to give herself room, but can only drag on to bring an end to her well-crafted 41.
