    And that's where we're going to leave it - two impressive wins for India and Australia today ensure they're in control of Group B with two wins from two. You can watch the India-Pakistan highlights below if you've not seen them yet.

    We'll be back tomorrow - and if the weather gods relent, join us for coverage of England v Bangladesh from St Lucia from 19:30 GMT tomorrow evening. Bye for now.

    But Healy brought up her half-century with a six - and Australia were soon home and hosed with more than half their allotted overs to spare.

    It left Australia needing just 94 to win - and they were given a leg up by another five-run penalty, the third of the day, for Ireland's batters running down the middle of the pitch,

    Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney showed Ireland no mercy with the bat - though Kim Garth did have the satisfaction of removing Mooney for 14:

    Gaby Lewis, just 17, was the second Ireland player to be run out by a direct hit...

  5. Champagne moment

    Arguably the ball of the day - possibly of the tournament - was bowled by Ashleigh Gardner - one of Ebony Rainford-Brent's players to watch at this tournament - which spun viciously to bowl Isobel Joyce.

    We then had two virtually identical dismissals, as Ellyse Perry bowled both Clare Shillington and Eimear Richardson as both tried to ramp her over fine leg.

    Kim Garth later perished the same way against Megan Schutt.

    Let's look back at how this game went with our in-play highlights.

    Ireland won the toss and chose to bat - and though they got through the powerplay unscathed, soon lost Cecelia Joyce to a great piece of fielding:

  8. Captain's view

    Australia captain Meg Lanning: "Obviously you want everyone to be in form, so we gave Ellyse Perry an opportunity today and she looked good. We just wanted to do the basics well, we need to keep improving. We were good in the field and it was nice to finish that way with the bat - but we still feel we can get better. We've got some tough games coming up."

  9. Captain's view

    Ireland captain Laura Delany: "We had certain targets set - it was more difficult than we expected with the bat, and Healy and Mooney went at us from ball one. Playing against the best team in the world, you have to be able to put a score on the board - we'd hoped for 120 or 130. We executed our plans at times, but we weren't consistent - we needed a stronger partnership in the middle but Kim Garth did well for us in the lower order."

  10. Player of the match

    Australia wicketkeeper-batter Alyssa Healy: "I love T20 cricket, you just keep rolling. I'm really enjoying it at the moment so hopefully we can keep on winning. I'm really enjoying playing with some freedom and no doubt my golf is helping! No matter what the conditions our bowlers are doing the business and doing really well."

    So, rather as we expected. Australia and India end the day with two wins from two, and remain favourites to qualify for the semi-finals from this group.

    Lydia Greenway

    Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

    That's shown the absolute dominance of Australia in this tournament. Very, very convincing. They're at the other end of the spectrum from Ireland - Australia's state game is fully professional, while Ireland's players are amateur.

  13. Aus 94-1

    Surely this is the over when they'll win it? Garth bowls, Healy unleashes a cross-batted baseball-style blast over mid-off, two runs are taken, and that's the game.


  14. Aus 92-1

    Perry rotates the strike with a leg bye - Healy clubs a full toss to the cover sweeper for one. Two needed, and a much better over from O'Reilly.

  15. Post update

    Here's a champagne moment for Alyssa Healy as she reaches her half-century with a six.

  16. Aus 90-1

    Healy 53, Perry 9

    Lucy O'Reilly, who had that nightmare over with wides earlier, has had a change of ends - and will probably be happy to be bowling to two right-handers. She starts with a couple of dot balls to Healy, who then hammers a single to long-off. Four needed to win.

  17. Aus 89-1

    Target 94

    A fumble from keeper Waldron allows her opposite number Healy to run a bye. Five needed for Australia's 11th successive win in this format.

    Quick, Ireland fans - here's a wicket for you to enjoy...

  19. Aus 88-1

    Garth gets a second over, Healy's single reduces the target to seven. Perry dabs one to third man - six needed.

    Will Healy try to win it with one shot?

  20. Aus 86-1

    Ireland turn back to off-spinner Richardson, who bowled the opening over. With the powerplay finished, they can put the field back and after a couple of singles, Perry launches a six over mid-wicket to put the Aussies to within eight runs of victory.
