Australia Women

5.30pm The celebrations begin in the England camp. They secure their first World Cup win over Australia since 1993. The result also means the hosts jump to the top of the points table.

It was a thrilling finish with the game boiling down to the last ball. Australia were left needing six off the last ball, but Gunn held her nerve and kept the batsman to two. She had earlier smacked 39 off 42 balls to help lift England to 259. Brunt was also central to the win, following up her breezy 45 with two wickets and a crucial catch. Hope you enjoyed the coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. Karthik Krishnaswamy's report, which will be updated shortly, will tell you the full story of this blockbuster. Until next time, goodbye and good night

Brunt, Player of the Match: England-Australia is always a show. I am happy I performed well. We've got such a good line-up, and sometimes it is hard to bat up the order. We have had a lot of practice batting lower down the order. I think 200-220 was good. To finish with that [259] gave us the confidence. As I bowler, I don't really like bowling on these flat pitches. Both sides' bowlers varied the pace. It is always nice to get one up over the Aussies. It is the first one they have lost and you can never count them out. Just a wee one (what about the celebration tonight?)

Lanning: The crowd created a great atmosphere, and England were just too good today. The games against India and South Africa are going to be tricky. We have to bounce back and put on a strong performance.

Knight: We bat deep, Katherine and Gunn batted well today. It wasn't as good a wicket as the other day. We bowled really straight and the bowling was clinical. Chuffed with the way the girls bowled and really pleased with the win. We have worked hard on our variations at the death and just trusted the bowlers to do that.

Andy: "When did England last win 2 cricket internationals within 5 minutes? Lord's and Bristol joy! Rejoice!"

smug: "Those 23 wides and godknowswhy decision to hand bowl to Villani in the last over seems to have made the difference, and 'English' fielding."

49.6JL Gunn to JL Jonassen, 2 runs, length ball outside off, swatted across the line in the air, to the left of deep midwicket. Australia only manage two, and England win by three runs.
49.5JL Gunn to JL Jonassen, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, pretty full and outside off, drilled away to long-off. Sciver, who had dropped a dolly earlier, falls to her left and palms the ball away to the boundary. She crumbles under pressure. Will it prove costly?.
49.4JL Gunn to A Gardner, OUT, No run, Brunt runs to her left from long-on and pouches the catch. Full and drops on middle, Gardner races down the track, and miscues it. Gets more height but not distance. England close in on a famous win.
49.3JL Gunn to JL Jonassen, 1 run, backs away outside leg again, yorker outside off, jammed to cover.
49.2JL Gunn to JL Jonassen, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, full and outside off, Jonassen manufactures room outside leg and clatters it through the covers. Flat-batted away, skips away to the right of long-off.
49.1JL Gunn to A Gardner, 1 run, 77kph, slower and fuller outside off, the batsman can't manufacture enough power. Stabbed to long-on.
