    BBC Test Match Special

    We're going to wrap up tonight's live text at this point as England celebrate their win - TMS will be batting on through the night for the next few hours, to bring you full commentary on South Africa v Sri Lanka.

    So keep your wireless on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra - or point your browser towards this page where you will be able to listen to the game. Look out for the highlights round-up on the BBC Sport website later - on the live text front, we'll be back tomorrow evening to bring you Pakistan v Ireland from Guyana.

    Until then... take care and curl up under the duvet with TMS on your wireless. Bye for now.

  2. South Africa choose to field

    They are moving quickly on to the second match of the day and South Africa win the toss and decide to bowl first against the Sri Lankans.

  3. Lee takes the gauntlets

    Sri Lanka and South Africa are warming up for the next game, which starts at midnight GMT - and as we expected, Lizelle Lee is warming up with the wicketkeeping gloves for South Africa.

    If you missed the news earlier, their number one keeper Trisha Chetty has been ruled out of the tournament with a back injury, and her teenage replacement Faye Tunnicliffe has not arrived in time for this game.

  4. Player of the match

    England spinner Kirstie Gordon on TMS: "It was really special to make my debut. It's been a bit difficult watching the rain all day against Sri Lanka, but we were optimistic this morning that we'd get a game in. I've been working hard on getting a good start which calms your nerves.

    "The first wicket was great, I wasn't sure if it was going for six but Danni Wyatt has safe hands. We play our best cricket when we're playing with freedom. My mum and dad are here, my auntie and uncle and cousins have flown in from Canada.

    "I didn't know I was definitely going to play today as I was told I'd play if it was a full 20 overs, but if it was a reduced game, the team might change."

  5. A note of caution...

    We have to be realistic - some of the batters for Bangladesh aren't going to be like Deandra Dottin and Lizelle Lee. England are going to face some tougher tests.

  6. Captain's view

    Bangladesh captain Salma Khatun: "We needed to get a lot more runs, our bowling is really good. If we can improve our batting we will be good."

    BBC Test Match Special

    TMS are going into podcast mode - they're going to link up with the team in Guyana to review how the tournament's gone so far...

  8. Captain's view

    England captain Heather Knight: "Conditions were tricky with the amount of rain we've had, but we were just delighted to get out there and to get a game in. We really appreciate the support we've had. We thought it was going to swing first up so Anya and Nat took the new ball and did really well, then the spinners came on.

    "We wanted to win the game as quickly as we could, but in T20 you're always likely to lose wickets early on."

    Kirstie Gordon has played a lot of her cricket for Scotland - I played against her in the Women's County Championship, although I didn't face her. She made it into Loughborough Lightning's KSL team and she had a great summer as the leading wicket-taker - she's a different type of bowler to Linsey Smith as she turns the ball, while Linsey skids the ball on. [Off-spinner] Dani Hazell missed out today, she's been one of the best T20 bowlers in the world, but Bangladesh have a lot of right-handers so it's no surprise England went with three left-arm spinners.

  11. Player of the match

    England spinner Kirstie Gordon: "I'm really pleased with how it came out. There were a lot of nerves but having two friends who were also debutants made it a lot easier. It was a good decision to put them in and we put them under some early pressure and took wickets."

    There was something in the pitch, and that's no surprise with the weather we've had. I was surprised Bangladesh didn't go with more seam, but we've got two of the best seamers in the world coming up in a bit with Marizanne Kapp and Shabnim Ismail for South Africa.

  13. Post update

    I suspect a large part of England's feeling will be relief, that they managed to get a game in before the rain struck.

    You'd expect Kirstie Gordon to get player of the match, but all the England bowlers did well, and that partnership from Jones and Sciver was good. I think they'll be asking Nat Sciver to bowl in the powerplay and if England are to do well in this tournament, she'll have to play a big part.

  15. Eng 64-3

    Knight dabs to short third man, Jones scampers through for the single, and that's a "W" on the board for England - who only needed three balls after the rain break. Duckworth, Lewis, Stern and the ICC are all satisfied.

  16. Eng 63-3

    Knight turns the next delivery off her toes, two Bangladesh fielders collide at deep square leg and the ball goes between them for four.

    Scores level.

  17. Eng 59-3

    Target 64 (16 overs)

    Khadja Tul Kubra (off-spin, cap, glasses) gets a third over.

    Her first ball is perfectly swept for four by Heather Knight. Five to win.

    How is Sarah Taylor at the moment?

    ECB head of women's cricket Clare Connor on TMS: "She's by no means fully fit. Her mental health condition has been widely documented, and Katherine Brunt has had multiple back surgeries, so that's two experienced players we're missing. They're a big loss and if we can get to the semi-finals and final without them, this group will have done really well."

  19. Post update

    Right, England are back in the middle and ready to play. Nine needed to win from 42 balls and wrap this up.
