  1. That's all, folks...

    We're going to leave it there for Ireland and Pakistan - TMS will be back in action in around 15 minutes with commentary on Australia v New Zealand from 23:45 GMT. You can listen to that on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra or via this page.

    Take a look at Matt Henry's match report here - and you can review today's game with all the highlights on this page. Make sure you join TMS for the trans-Tasman match - and then if you're still determined not to sleep, join The Cricket Social for coverage of England's second men's Test in Sri Lanka from 07:00 GMT, though the live text team will be up and running from around 04:00.

    Take care you get some sleep at some point, though...

  2. Post update

    England wicketkeeper Amy Jones on TMS, on the frustration of not being able to practise because of the St Lucia weather: "It is pretty annoying. It took us a few days before we'd even had a hit since we'd been here. We had to be a little bit creative and have a few hits under the stands.

    "We just tried to make the most of what we had and just remember all our plans - you might not be able to get out and hit them, but there's more prep you can do. So [we were] just staying focused and waiting to get out here."

    Tomorrow, it's back to Group A in St Lucia - but it's England's turn to sit it out (which, cynics might suggest, means it won't rain at all?) - tomorrow's games are Sri Lanka v Bangladesh at 20:00 GMT and West Indies v South Africa at midnight (ie Wednesday night into Thursday morning).

    Here's England's Amy Jones...

  4. Post update

    So, not the result Ireland wanted - as Lydia mentioned earlier, they can take positives such as Lucy O'Reilly's bowling (even if they left it a bit late to bring her back for her third and fourth overs) and some of the fielding. The batting, though, once Clare Shillington was out, was always going to be an uphill struggle to reach a target of 140.

  5. Captain's view

    Ireland captain Laura Delany: "We are really disappointed. We came here with a lot of belief that we could win this game but unfortunately we put up a fight but didn't put up enough to get us over the line.

    "120-130 was par on this wicket. We just didn't have a big enough partnership. We need to look at dot balls because we didn't have enough scoring areas."

    And here are the last two Irish wickets to fall - Lucy O'Reilly and Laura Delany.

  7. Captain's view

    More from Pakistan captain Javeria Khan: "A good win, but still we need some improvement. We can be better in the first six overs. it was a good fielding effort as we can't afford mistakes in this match, so I'm glad the girls came really hard at it."

    So why should listeners stay up for Australia-New Zealand, which will be on TMS with coverage from 23:45 GMT?

    Because we're going to see some fireworks. And some fire-eaters!

    It would be wrong to say Ireland's chances were lost when Clare Shillington got out, but they lost a lot of momentum at that point.

  10. Player of the match

    It was her highest score, but was this Pakistan captain Javeria Khan's best innings?

    "Yes, my best innings in terms of runs, I had to stick in and take my time to get us to the 20th over and get us a decent total. The ball wasn't coming on nicely, it was difficult to hit but I knew after seven or eight overs I'd have some bad balls to hit for boundaries. I know in T20 cricket you have to score quickly."

  11. Post update

    Again, just mopping up a few of the late wickets - those of Shauna Kavanagh and Mary Waldron.

    Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

    Ireland have played good cricket, but only good in patches - such as Lucy O'Reilly's bowling and Isobel Joyce's run-out. The batting is a concern as in T20 cricket you want to play all around the wicket - these girls just need to be playing more games.

  13. Ire 101-9

    Dar goes round the wicket to the leftie Metcalfe, who ends the innings with a big heave which falls just short of mid-on. Ireland's wait for a win at a World T20 goes on.


  14. Ire 100-9

    Celeste Raack plays her first ball in international cricket into the leg side for a dot ball - then opens her international account with a cut to third man for two. A tickle to mid-wicket does bring up the hundred.

  15. Ire 97-9

    Metcalfe, who needed her right knee strapping after bowling three overs of leg-spin, sees out the over.

    One over left, 43 needed... but never mind that, can Ireland make it into three figures?

  16. Ire 97-9

    Ciara Metcalfe, the oldest player in the tournament, is out at number 11 - is she the first left-hander we've seen all day? She cuts Mir for two from her first ball.

    If you think I've stopped giving the target, apologies - it's because Ireland need 43 from nine balls. They will soon require snookers.

    It was a leg-break that turned a lot. Well bowled Sana Mir.

  18. WICKET

    Delany b Mir 7 (Ire 95-9)

    The bespectacled Celeste Raack is the new batter - but she can only look on as Delany is bowled aiming a legside slog. Pakistan are one wicket away.

    I think that is a wrong decision on two counts. I think it was a no ball and the wicketkeeper has knocked the bails off with her helmet.
