As it happened

  1. 0920: 

    So, it tested the patience a little at times, but the important news is that England are through to the Super Six phase. Their games will be against Australia (Friday 8 Feb at 0330 GMT), Pakistan or South Africa (Sunday 10 Feb at 0330), and New Zealand (Wednesday 13 Feb at a more palatable 0900) - and needless to say, you'll be able to catch all of those games on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra, with live text commentary right here - same Bat-time, same Bat-channel.

    Thanks for your company and patience today - I hope you appreciate we couldn't watch the game either - and make sure you join us on Friday. TTFN.

  2. 0912: 

    The other Group A game has just started - Sri Lanka have lost an early wicket against India at the Brabourne, they're 10-1 after two overs. In Group B, by the way, Australia are 96-1 in the 20th over chasing 228 to beat New Zealand, while it looks like Pakistan are heading out of the tournament, they're 52-7 in the 20th over chasing 208 to beat South Africa.

  3.  

    Kevin Richards ‏on Twitter: "England fans never happy. If we'd knocked the runs off in 20 overs, they'd have claimed a lack of tactical nous. Played girls!"

  4. 0909: 

    So, to confirm, England have qualified for the Super Six phase, where they will be joined by (a) the winner of India v Sri Lanka, and (b) either the loser of that game or West Indies, depending on who has the better net run-rate.

  5.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Anya Shrubsole bowled with pace and control, her line against the left-handers was wayward against India but she got movement and bounce, I think she deserves the player of the match award. I hope Katherine Brunt's fine, as she rolled her ankle slightly - we think it may have been in celebration. It's the sort of thing the coaches will be a little annoyed about, but at least they've got two days off until the next game, while that should also help Charlotte Edwards who has been ill today. Let's hope from an England perspective that India can do what they should do, and beat Sri Lanka at home."

  6. 35 overs: 
    Eng 103-4

    Heather Knight drills a four down the ground, and high-fives Jenny Gunn as England win by six wickets.

  7.   
    Charles Dagnall, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "It's a shame to a degree that the West Indies capitulated in that way, as we'd heard such good things about Dottin and Stafanie Taylor."

  8.  

    Ralph Brooker on Twitter: "Margin of victory seems a better tie-breaker. Even number of boundaries hit. This disrespects the affected teams and the fans."

  9. 34 overs: 
    Eng 99-4

    Gunn faces Munroe, knowing that one hit will do it, but she's denied a couple of times by the fleet-footed Kycia Knight at extra cover. Maiden over.

  10.  

    From Phil in Henlow, via text on 81111: "This performance from England is not winning them fans."

  11. 33 overs: 
    Eng 99-4 (TARGET 102)

    Gunn is off the mark, pushing Dottin for two as Kycia Knight - who fell in the first over of the game - makes a good stop to prevent a boundary. Three singles and a wide chip away at the deficit, Dottin responds with a bouncer and Heather Knight dismissively pulls it for four. England need three to win.

  12.  

    Peter Sketch ‏on Twitter: "If you're going to play games with the run rate, make sure you've done the maths first. Typical England."

  13. 32 overs: 
    Eng 89-4

    Knight helps herself to a four and a two as England are moving remorselessly towards victory, with 13 more needed. And news from the other game in Group A, Sri Lanka have won the toss and batted in the day-nighter at the Brabourne, forcing India to bat under the evening dew... (It's now snowing here, by the way).

  14. 31 overs: 
    Eng 83-4

    Dottin hits Knight on the pad... and while the Windies players are all appealing for leg before, England scamper a leg bye, so that's a maiden over for Dottin. A sudden wave of rain, verging on sleet, is besieging us here at Beeb Towers in Salford, but it would take some quite cataclysmic weather to halt England here.

  15.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Dottin looks fired up, she's picked up three wickets and she should be going to the captain and asking to have a close fielder or two in. They've nothing to lose here."

  16. 30 overs: 
    Eng 82-4 (TARGET 102)

    Knight is off the mark in slightly fortuitous circumstances with an edged two to third man against Munroe, while a top edge falls safely and they run a single - reducing the target to 20.

  17.  

    Nicholas Agg-Manning on Twitter: "England should believe in themselves - play to win, whoever & whenever - simples! They are having kittens now with four down!"

  18.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "All the construction workers have just stopped and are watching the cricket. Their boss must be off today."

  19. 29 overs: 
    Eng 79-4

    Jenny Gunn is the new batter, she's perfectly capable of chasing down this target in short order... if that's what England want.

  20.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "Lydia Greenway wasn't happy about something there. It might have been the decision, or she could have had a bit of a send-off from the Windies. The Kent left-hander had a good look back as she walked towards the pavilion."

  21. 28.3 overs: 
    WICKET- Greenway lbw b Dottin 2 (Eng 79-4)

    After a wide from Dottin, Greenway, still two short of 2,000 ODI runs, becomes the fourth England wicket to fall as she's trapped lbw by Dottin who's bowling very straight. You don't think England will regret the go-slow, do you?

  22. 28 overs: 
    Eng 78-3 (TARGET 102)

    Refreshed by the drinks break, Munroe sends down a maiden to Knight, who is yet to score.

  23.   
    Prakash Wakankar, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Assuming that England beat West Indies, England will go through with four points if India beat Sri Lanka, but if Sri Lanka win, England will only go through with two points. But in the Super Six, every game is crucial."

  24.  

    First Line ‏on Twitter: "Forget net run rates & just win the game strongly. Send a message to other teams. Now we have to worry about a batting collapse!"

  25. 0832: 
    NET RUN RATE RULES

    While the players take drinks... some of you are asking whether England's net run rate will carry through to the Super Six stage. Check this out from the official rules:

    "In the event of teams finishing on equal points at the end of the Super Sixes, the right to play in the final will be decided by the following order of priority:

    - The most wins in all of the matches against the other Super Sixes qualifiers.

    - If there are still teams with equal points and equal wins in the Super Sixes matches then in such case the team with the higher net run rate in all matches played against the other Super Sixes qualifiers (in both the Group stage and Super Sixes matches) will be placed in the higher position.

    - If still equal, then the team which was the winner of the head-to-head match played between them will be placed in the higher position.

    - In the highly unlikely event that teams cannot be separated by the above this will be done by drawing lots."

  26. 27 overs: 
    DRINKS BREAK- Eng 78-3

    Having started her first over with back-to-back wickets, Dottin begins her second with couple of a horrible deliveries, the first for five wides down the leg side and the second is also a (singleton) wide. The medium-pacer seems to be struggling with her line against the left-handed Greenway, finally she's hit on the pad but the umpire's not impressed.

    A little stat while the players take drinks... Heather Knight made her England debut on this ground in March 2010, when she made 49 opening the innings with Ebony.

  27.  

    Ralph Brooker on Twitter: "I'd be very disappointed if this really is a tactical go-slow. Hardly in the spirit of the game. Blame net run rate."

  28. 26 overs: 
    Eng 72-3 (TARGET 102)

    Heather Knight is the new batter, she edges her first ball and it reaches first slip on the bounce... England need 30 to qualify for the Super Six.

  29.   
    Prakash Wakankar, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "West Indies will be pleased to have picked up three quick wickets, but by no stretch of the imagination are England fretting."

  30.  

    Richie Rajamani on Twitter: "With all respect and forgive me for saying it, however I think the spirit of the rule is more important than the rule itself!"

  31. 25.5 overs: 
    WICKET- Wyatt lbw b Munroe 40 (Eng 72-3)

    Ebony on TMS points out that Greenway, on one, needs three more runs to reach 2,000 ODI runs. A leg bye brings Wyatt on strike, she pushes a single into the covers to move to 40. Greenway dabs a single to short third man, but Wyatt misses out on a maiden ODI fifty when she's adjudged lbw to Munroe trying to play across the line.

  32.  

    Nick Campion on Twitter: "If England believe they can win the tournament, they should not be afraid of any team. This approach leaves them compromised."

  33.   
    Charles Dagnall, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Anyone who remembers Collis King, who hit arguably the biggest six at Lord's into the top tier, he bowled a bit like Dottin does - little medium-pace seamers off the wrong foot."

  34. 25 overs: 
    Eng 69-2

    Lydia Greenway is the new batter, to face the hat-trick ball... which is a wide. Bt of a let-down that, for Dottin. The left-hander is off the mark with a single, Dottin sends down another wide, while Wyatt does well to dig out a yorker.

  35.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "I think when you've been padded up for a long time like that, suddenly it's difficult when you have to concentrate."

  36. 24.2 overs: 
    WICKET- Taylor lbw b Dottin 0 (Eng 66-2)

    Sarah Taylor joins Danielle Wyatt at the wicket, her first ball is a big yorker and Taylor falls lbw - Dottin is on a hat-trick!

  37. 24.1 overs: 
    WICKET- Brindle c Aguilleira b Dottin 14 (Eng 66-1)

    Sixth bowler Deandra Dottin into the attack with some gentle medium pace, Brindle tries to late cut and edges her first ball straight to the keeper!

  38. 24 overs: 
    Eng 66-0

    New bowler Shaquana Quintyne serves up a juicy full toss which Brindle smacks back towards the pavilion for four, belatedly taking her into double figures, while a single takes her to 14. England need 36 more to win, but I don't think they'll be doing it with six sixes next over...

  39.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "I still remember having my photo taken making my England debut - Charlotte Edwards is handing me my cap, and I'm just grinning like a Cheshire cat. I started off as a bowler, but I'd had a year and a half out of the team with injury and came back as a batter."

  40. 23 overs: 
    Eng 61-0

    Charles on TMS notes that "this game is rather going through the motions" but England show a bit more intent than before, with Wyatt and Brindle helping themselves to two singles apiece against Daley.

  41.  

    Alex Houghton ‏on Twitter: "Not sure how to think about this batting, Just not cricket, or a professional game?"

    It's difficult to blame a side for making what they think is the best opportunity to progress, within the rules (which are set by the ICC) - do you think the rules need rethinking? Tweet us via #bbccricket with your thoughts

  42. 22 overs: 
    Eng 57-0

    That's more like it from Danielle Wyatt, she slog-sweeps Taylor for four, while a single takes her to 37, equalling her highest ODI score.

  43. 21 overs: 
    Eng 52-0

    West Indies skipper Aguilleira shuffles her bowlers as left-arm spinner Daley returns to the attack, Wyatt moves to 32 with a single.

  44.  

    Marcus Osborne ‏on Twitter: "Just getting into women's cricket thanks to your coverage but I'm curious, how did this WI team beat Sri Lanka who we lost to? Or rather, to whom we lost?"

    Well done for correcting yourself. Ending sentences with a preposition is something up with which I will not put!

  45. 20 overs: 
    DROPPED CATCH- Eng 51-0 (TARGET 102)

    Brindle edges Taylor to slip, it's dropped and trickles away for four. That's the fifty stand.

    Meanwhile, if you prefer your sport a little more turbo-charged than England's current slow stroll to victory, you can take a look at our live text on Formula 1 pre-season testing. Just don't get "our" DRS mixed up with "their" DRS...

  46.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "This is not a great advert for the tournament. They've set it up this way so teams play as many games as possible, but there's always a chance something like this can happen when the teams you take with you can help in the next stage."

  47. 19 overs: 
    Eng 47-0

    Another Wyatt single gives Brindle the rare chance of the strike, and the Lincolnshire right-hander moves to three (from 50 balls) with a single. Charles and Ebony on TMS think Wyatt could be on for "a cheeky fifty" here, a two takes her score to 31. (Her highest ODI score, by the way, is 37, against South Africa in Potchefstroom in 2011).

  48.  

    Nigel Kot on Twitter: "Good on England for bouncing back so strongly after losing to Sri Lanka."

  49. 18 overs: 
    Eng 43-0

    Another five dot balls followed by a Wyatt single. The required rate is really creeping up now, to... 1.84.

  50.   
    Charles Dagnall, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "I've received a tweet from someone who thinks West Indies' net run-rate will remain above Sri Lanka's, no matter how quickly England win, so maybe they should just get on with it."

  51. 17 overs: 
    Eng 42-0

    Wyatt negotiates five dot balls from Smartt before pinching the strike with a single to long leg off the last ball. If this go-slow continues for much longer, we may have to ask Daggers on TMS if he's got any more monkey v dog stories...

  52.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "Did Wyatt throw her head back in frustration when she cut that four?"

  53. 16 overs: 
    Eng 41-0

    Wyatt briefly breaks the shackles by firmly cutting Taylor for four - Ebony on TMS doesn't think Wyatt will enjoy having to bat slowly like this - while Taylor spins down a wide to take England's score to 40. A single takes Wyatt to 26.

  54.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "England not looking in a post-lunch hurry. If they go on to win this, England would most like to be joined by India and West Indies in the Super Six - that way they take the maximum four points through. If India win later, then Sri Lanka and West Indies will only be separated by net run-rate, so it would do England no harm to try to keep the Windies' NRR high."

  55. 15 overs: 
    Eng 35-0

    Smartt, who hails from Guyana, replaces Daley. Wyatt knocks a single but declines a second run when there was one going begging. Pedestrian.

  56. 14 overs: 
    Eng 34-0 (TARGET 102)

    West Indies are rattling through their overs here, and England are content to take it slowly, for the reasons we've tried to explain, Brindle plays out a maiden from Taylor - she has scored two from 42 balls.

  57. 13 overs: 
    Eng 34-0

    Wyatt moves to 20 by steering Daley for four.

  58.   
    Sam Sheringham, BBC Sport

    "Elsewhere at the Women's World Cup, a century from Suzie Bates helped New Zealand recover from 39-4 to post 227-6 against Australia in a battle for the top qualifying slot in Group B. And in Cuttack, South Africa were indebted to an unbeaten 102 from Marizanne Kapp as they fought back from 55-4 to reach 207-5 against Pakistan. The loser of that one will be going home."

  59. 12 overs: 
    Eng 30-0

    Taylor spins down a rapid over to Wyatt, just a single off the last ball.

  60.   
    Prakash Wakankar, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "A person with a negative mindset would suggest collusion here, but I'm stressing that there is no suggestion of that whatsoever."

  61. 11 overs: 
    Eng 34-0

    Another maiden over - Prakash and Ebony on TMS think England's go-slow is because they want West Indies to qualify for the Super Six and not Sri Lanka - and so don't want to damage WI's net run rate too much. If you get my drift...

  62.  

    Rob Jones on Twitter: ""What does the India-Sri Lanka score have to be for us to go through with maximum points? New to women's cricket and loving it!"

    I reckon it's to England's advantage if Sri Lanka don't qualify - as then they would take through maximum points from their wins over India and West Indies, while their defeat against Sri Lanka would not matter...

  63.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "England are playing sensibly, but with no real urgency. Danni Wyatt hit out in the first over, but then a drink came out and they calmed down a little. I'm not sure why, maybe it's to do with net run-rate."

  64. 10 overs: 
    Eng 29-0

    West Indies turn to off-spinner Stafanie Taylor, who failed with the bat today and recorded a duck, can she redeem herself with the ball? It's the second maiden since lunch.

  65.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "Bright, burning sunshine greets the players as they emerge after lunch. I wonder if the Windies are thinking that they should just be about to begin a chase?"

  66. 9 overs: 
    Eng 29-0 (TARGET 102)

    Shanel Daley, who bowled the first over of the innings but was taken off after it went for 11, takes the first over after lunch and sends down a maiden to the watchful Brindle.

  67.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "It's great to see England back in good form today, although I think the conditions helped as it was surprising for West Indies to bat first in the dew."

  68. 0723: 

    We're nearly ready to resume, with Arran Brindle and Danielle Wyatt resuming on 29-0 for England, chasing 102 to win.

  69.  

    England head of women's cricket Clare Connor on TMS: "Because of the way women's sport has grown in the last 10-15 years, we don't have the professional club structure that men's sport have - but we have fit-for-purpose structure to support elite teams, without the conflicting priorities of supporting a professional club system."

  70.  

    Richard Giles on Twitter: "Thoroughly enjoying the lunchtime interviews with the English women legends. Hope there is more to come."

  71.  

    Former England batter Claire Taylor on TMS: "We remember the bad times. We remember that we couldn't get within 100 runs of Australia or New Zealand."

  72. 0648: 

    "England in the ascendancy," notes Charles Dagnall on TMS - while we hunt down some brekky, keep listening to your wireless as after a quick check with Simon Mann on England men's warm-up victory in New Zealand and a quick word with man of the match Jos Buttler, you can listen to another "England women's legends" interview with Kevin Howells. Having already spoken to Baroness Heyhoe Flint and Enid Bakewell, today's interviews are with a couple of modern greats - Clare Connor and Claire Taylor.

  73.  

    From Robert in Billericay, TMS inbox: "Excellent coverage and thanks to BBC for the effort. So can you share any info on why this game is not also being covered by 'that other lot' on television? Anyway, go England!"

    I think it's because the ICC's host broadcaster, Star Cricket, is only televising the games at the Brabourne Stadium...

  74.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "England will be very happy to go in without any wickets down. It's great to have Anya Shrubsole back, but you can't say how important the toss was as England lost the toss but were really able to maximise the conditions."

  75. 8 overs: 
    "LUNCH" INTERVAL- Eng 29-0 (TARGET 102)

    The TMS crew think this should be the last over before "lunch" (being oddly taken mid-innings, as we explained earlier, because West Indies were bowled out so quickly. Smartt hits Brindle on the pad, there's a confident lbw appeal... but nothing doing. A wide and a Brindle single take England safely to lunch without concern.

  76.  

    From David, TMS inbox: "As long as we keep our heads, we should win this quite easily, but with Brunt injured, Edwards ill and Australia on the horizon, [coach] Mark Lane won't be lying back in the sun."

  77. 7 overs: 
    Eng 27-0

    While TMS scorer Phil explains the intricacies of net run-rate, Munroe advances the England score with a couple of "single" wides, then goes the whole hog and fires five wides to the boundary. Extras has 11, Wyatt has 15, and Brindle has one.

  78.  

    Chris Brown ‏on Twitter: "Gutted, in Niger and can't even listen to match let alone watch it. Rubbish. But even from Niger, I can see it was odd to bat first."

  79. 6 overs: 
    Eng 20-0 (TARGET 102)

    A breeze flutters past the TMS team - who are commentating from an old-fashioned tent (you can see a picture Prakash has posted on Twitter) at the Bandra Kurla Complex ground. Brindle plays out a maiden from Smartt.

  80. 5 overs: 
    Eng 20-0

    Wyatt ends the run of dot balls by steering the last ball of Munroe's over for four. Steady from England.

  81.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Danni Wyatt's dad has joined the 'parents' crew' at the ground, he's only just got here today."

  82. 4 overs: 
    Eng 16-0

    Having bowled a couple of no-balls in her first over, Smartt sends down a wide, but England are watchful - the bizarre playing conditions which have required England to go out to bat for a spell before the "proper" lunch interval mean they look like they're batting for lunch.

  83.   
    Charles Dagnall, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Mark Butcher and I were having a quiet little soft drink at the golf course yesterday, and there was a monkey and a dog there. Maybe it was a territory thing, but they started fighting like hammer and tongs. The monkey was holding its own, then there was a stand-off, and they were just ready for round two, when the dog's mates came along - a pack of six. The monkey used a very good strategy... and climbed a tree. I think a moral victory to the monkey."

  84. 3 overs: 
    Eng 15-0

    West Indies dispense with Daley after that dodgy opening over and turn to Subrina Munroe's right-arm medium-fast seam, and she sends down a maiden to Wyatt.

  85. 2 overs: 
    Eng 15-0

    Right-arm seamer Tremayne Smartt takes the second over, she also starts with a no-ball which Brindle knocks for a single, while Wyatt cuts for a quick single... that's a no-ball as well, West Indies are all over the place here. The free-hit ball is faced by Brindle, she's "bowled" as she aims a big hit and misses, but like Shemaine Campbelle in the eighth over of the Windies innings, survives as she can't be out from a free-hit ball, other than run out. Captain Merissa Aguilleira, by the way, is keeping wicket in a wide-brimmed Richie Richardson-style sunhat.

  86. 1 over: 
    Eng 11-0 (TARGET 102)

    Daley opens with a shoulder-high no-ball - close to a beamer against the petite figure of Wyatt - but she clubs it away for four. Wyatt helps herself to a two and another four as Daley completes a ropey first over, so England are off to a flier.

  87. 0610: 

    Arran Brindle is going to open with Danielle Wyatt, as Charlotte Edwards was off the field for a while - apparently she's not feeling well - and Shanel Daley is going to open the bowling with left-arm spin for West Indies.

  88.   
    Charles Dagnall, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "The physio is going to have to work day and night to get Katherine Brunt ready for the Super Six - with the first game against Australia on Friday, every game's important from now on."

  89. 0606: 
    GET INVOLVED

    So, a cracking start to the day by England - if you're only just joining us, where have you been? Let us know what you think of the game so far by texting 81111, emailing tms@bbc.co.uk or tweeting us via #bbccricket.

    And if you're preparing to leave for work, don't forget the new BBC Sport app and the BBC iPlayer Radio mobile app which will allow you to take TMS with you wherever you go.

  90. 0601: 

    So, we've got only a 10-minute break before England's reply. Charles Dagnall makes a good point on TMS - with Charlotte Edwards off the field for a lengthy spell, she won't be able to open the innings, so it'll be interesting to see how they adjust the order. Will everyone move up one, or will someone like Heather Knight - who's opened in 14 of her 29 previous ODIs - open in Edwards's place?

  91.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "Charlotte Edwards must have feared the worst when the coin again failed to favour her, but, from then on, everything has gone far better than England could have expected. A baffling decision by West Indies has backfired spectacularly. The fact that nine wickets have fallen to seam (the other was a run-out) says it all."

  92. 36.4 overs: 
    WICKET- Munroe lbw b Shrubsole 0 (WI 101 all out)

    Daley guides Shrubsole for a single to third man to move to 30 - exactly a third of the Windies' runs at this stage. With Munroe on strike, Taylor stands up to the stumps, but Shrubsole strays with her line and fires five wides down the leg side. The next ball is also wide, and then a third legside wide of an increasingly long over also shoots away to the boundary - Taylor now stands back from the stumps. Munroe swings and misses, but the innings is concluded when a full toss hits her on the boot and she's out lbw. Only those wides helped West Indies reach three figures.

  93. 36 overs: 
    WI 89-9

    Charles and Prakash on TMS think it's a bit unfair that if West Indies are bowled out here by 1140 local time (0610 GMT), there's only a 10-minute interval between innings, play then continues, and there's a "proper" interval a little later. Brindle completes a wicket maiden to last batter Subrina Munroe, and has excellent figures of 2-2-0-3.

  94.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "Charlotte Edwards has been off the pitch for a while - Danielle Hazell is fielding in her place. In the skipper's absence, vice-captain Jenny Gunn has been calling the shots. Looking a good move to have got Brindle into the attack."

  95. 35.2 overs: 
    WICKET- Smartt c Shrubsole b Brindle 0 (WI 89-9)

    Batting powerplay has to be taken - Smartt lobs a straightforward catch to mid-on and Brindle has three wickets for no runs!

  96. 35 overs: 
    WI 89-8

    Shrubsole has changed ends, can she wrap it up for England? Both batters are (bravely?) unhelmeted - Smartt may not have learned from the T20 international I attended at Old Trafford last year, when she opened the batting bare-headed, and was literally knocked to the floor by a Shrubsole bouncer during a hostile spell. Daley survives a maiden over, Shrubsole has excellent figures of 8-3-9-3.

  97.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "It just looked as though Brindle was nipping it around off the seam. The ball that bowled Quintyne certainly looked to have moved to take the off stump. She's returned to fine leg full of energy, 'looking for run-outs here guys,' she shouts."

  98. 34 overs: 
    WI 89-8

    Brindle completes the second double-wicket maiden of the innings as Tremayne Smartt defends her first ball.

  99.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Quintyne's foot movement was pretty poor, she was nowhere near that. And it puts the pressure back on Daley - with only two wickets left, what does she do?"

  100. 33.5 overs: 
    WICKET- Quintyne b Brindle 0 (WI 89-8)

    The new batter is Shaquana Quintyne, she's hit on the pad by her second ball as England appeal... but the umpire is unmoved. But she's castled by her third as Brindle strikes again!

  101.   
    Sam Sheringham, BBC Sport

    "Not a day for the batters at the Women's World Cup. In Group B, New Zealand are struggling on 64-4 after 21 overs against Australia, with the winner looking to take maximum points through to the Super Six stage. South Africa are 81-5 after 26 against Pakistan in a straight fight for the final qualifying spot."

  102. 33.2 overs: 
    WICKET- Kyshona Knight st Taylor b Brindle33 (WI 89-7)

    Stephan's called it - England turn to medium-pacer Arran Brindle as their sixth bowler, and she makes the breakthrough as she draws a false stroke from Knight - whose 33 came from 86 balls - and Taylor removes the bails.

  103.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "Arran Brindle has started to wheel her arms around. I don't know if she's had the nod or just trying to drop a hint."

  104. 33 overs: 
    WI 89-6

    Colvin begins her last over - having bowled the latter half of Katherine Brunt's sixth over when the tall pace bowler went off injured, she'll only be able to bowl 9.3 overs today. Knight steers a rare boundary, her contribution to the Windies cause has been invaluable today.

  105.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "Straight away, Shrubsole troubles Daley. A flashing play and miss is followed by the loopy chance that falls short of Jenny Gunn at cover. The sun may have broken through in Mumbai, but it still looks like seam is the way to go."

  106. 32 overs: 
    WI 84-6

    England turn back to pace as Anya Shrubsole returns to the attack, Knight moves to 28 with a single, while Daley is braver than some, choosing not to wear a helmet against the quick bowler.

  107.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "England's spinners have got very little from this pitch, so it's surprising how long Charlotte Edwards has persisted with them. Yes, Brunt is off injured, but Shrubsole could have returned, and there are also the options of Jenny Gunn and Arran Brindle."

  108. 31 overs: 
    WI 83-6

    Daley breaks the shackles a little against Colvin, hitting the left-armer over her head for four. Time for a bowling change?

  109.   
    Charles Dagnall, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    On Twitter: "You know when I said it could have been an over elaborate celebration injury for Brunt? I MAY not have been wrong. I stress may..."

  110. 30 overs: 
    DROPPED CATCH- WI 77-6

    Marsh wheels away for her penultimate over, Daley cracks a four through the covers, then once again a potential slip catch is not held as Heather Knight gets a hand to it but can't hold on. This stand is now worth 46.

  111.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "It's still a little bit overcast, but nowhere near as much as it was this morning. You're seeing the ball move through quicker now."

  112. 29 overs: 
    WI 72-6

    Knight pushes Colvin for a single, and collides with the Sussex slow left-armer as she makes her ground at the bowler's end. Daley remains more watchful, blocking a couple of deliveries before pushing the last ball for two.

  113.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "The women's game has changed so quickly - we always used to go into the game with four spin bowlers, and because we didn't play on such good pitches, spinners were the key. But we now play on better tracks, and batters are more powerful, so it's the extra pace of bowlers like Brunt that make the difference."

  114. 28 overs: 
    WI 69-6

    Marsh to continue, her over is interrupted as there's a dog on the field! An occasional hazard on the subcontinent... Anya Shrubsole - apparently not a fan of our canine friends - moves away from it, while Tammy Beaumont ushers the errant hound off the field. Three from the over.

  115.   
    Charles Dagnall, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "In the scheme of the match, this is quite a good partnership, but when you're 66-6, 20 would seem a good partnership."

  116. 27 overs: 
    WI 66-6

    Daley and Knight exchange singles against Colvin, again it's two from the over. It's 66-6 - "666, an old Iron Maiden song for any old rockers out there," notes Charles Dagnall on TMS - he's clearly getting into the Henry Blofeld spirit as he notices a crane moving overhead.

  117. 26 overs: 
    WI 64-6

    Marsh and Colvin have bowled in tandem for a dozen overs now, Charles and Ebony on TMS are wondering about a bowling change as Marsh continues for her seventh over. Two runs from it. Knight has 22, Daley has 16.

  118. 25 overs: 
    WI 62-6

    Colvin finds Daley's outside edge, but Heather Knight at slip can't get her hands to it and it disappears for four between keeper and slip. Only the third boundary off the bat this innings. But the next ball is a much better stroke by Daley, a flashing drive through extra cover for four. A couple more mean it's 10 off the over, easily the most expensive so far this innings.

  119.   
    Charles Dagnall, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "I said in the India game that the important thing was to win rather than worry about net run-rate, but this game could be the one where England can come out all guns blazing and get their run rate up."

  120. 24 overs: 
    WI 52-6

    Knight works Marsh away to bring the fifty up for West Indies, as the seventh-wicket pair add some singles to the score.

  121.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "Bandra Kurla, the district in which this match is being played, is a new part of the city, first planned in 1977. The commercial offices of Mumbai have now moved here from the south of the city, bringing with them this new ground which is the home of the Mumbai Cricket Association. Initially used as a practice facility, the construction of the impressive pavilion has led to matches being held here."

  122. 23 overs: 
    WI 48-6

    A slight fumble by substitute fielder Tammy Beaumont (on for the injured Brunt) as the ball bobbles on the outfield but Daley had ran the first run straight through and can't turn for a second. Knight gets a leading edge to Colvin, it just evades another substitute fielder, Danielle Hazell (not sure who she's on for) and they run a couple.

  123.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Shanel Daley's a good girl, I've caught up with her once or twice when we've been in the West Indies. I remember they like to party, they're good dancers."

  124. 22 overs: 
    WI 45-6

    Charles Dagnall on TMS thinks Daley "can't keep plodding for ever, and will get frustrated soon enough" as Marsh tosses the ball up invitingly to the left-hander. A quicker ball down the leg side is missed by Daley and keeper Sarah Taylor, and disappears to the boundary - at least West Indies have avoided their lowest ever ODI score.

  125.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "We've heard from the England camp - Katherine Brunt has rolled her ankle, hopefully it's not too serious, and they've got three days before their next game."

  126. 21 overs: 
    WI 39-6

    West Indies are rather limping along here, there's not much else they can do after that horrendous start to their innings - with net run-rate potenrially sending them through to the Super Six even if they do lose this game, they will hope to string the game out as long as possible. Colvin bowls a maiden.

  127.   
    Charles Dagnall, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    On Twitter: "Hoping that Katherine Brunt's injury was not because of over elaborate celebration. I don't think it is."

  128. 20 overs: 
    WI 39-6

    Marsh keeps it tight against Knight, who then can't get a full toss away. A single means the miserly Marsh has only conceded five runs from four overs.

  129.   
    Prakash Wakankar, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "England will not take this game lightly in any way, they will want to keep the intensity and pressure up."

  130. 19 overs: 
    WI 38-6

    Daley guides Colvin for a single to the mid-wicket sweeper, there's a bit of turn for the slow left-armer when the ball is tossed up. A single takes Knight to 14 out of 38.

  131.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "There's a big game today between Australia and New Zealand, in which the winner will carry through two extra points to the Super Six, and you want that momentum if you're going to meet them again later in the tournament."

  132. 18 overs: 
    WI 36-6

    Marsh begins her third over, as an off-spinner she'll quite enjoy bowling to two left-handers. Daley adds a two and a single to her score,

  133.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "Walking around the ground, a lone England flag caught my eye. It belongs to the parents of Tammy Beaumont, the England batter who isn't playing in this game. They were sat with Arran Brindle's father. They tell me that most of England's supporters out here are family, but one man, Julian the London cabbie, bases his holidays around following the girls abroad."

  134. 17 overs: 
    WI 33-6

    Colvin continues in the attack, Daley is off the mark with a single, while Colvin is no-balled for a high full toss.

  135.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "I was near the spot where the West Indies team are sitting as Merissa Aguilleira stormed off. She ripped her pads off in front of her team-mates who had their heads down or looked the other way."

  136. 16 overs: 
    WI 31-6

    West Indies' lowest women's ODI total was against England at Loughborough in 2008 when they were skittled for 41 and England won by 10 wickets - a certain Ebony Rainford-Brent making five not out, while complaining that her opening partner Sarah Taylor hogged the strike... back in Mumbai, Marsh bowls a maiden to Knight.

  137.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "This would be a massive blow if Brunt's injured, as she might make or break this World Cup for England. I just saw Charlotte Edwards walk over to the dug-out to have a word, which she wouldn't normally do."

  138. 15 overs: 
    WI 31-6

    A slight worry for England as Brunt leaves the field mid-over after that delivery, as left-arm spinner Holly Colvin completes the over to new batter Shanel Daley with three dot balls.

  139.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "You don't want to do West Indies' remaining batters a disservice, but that could be their last hope. Smart captaincy from Charlotte Edwards to bring Brunt back."

  140. 14.3 overs: 
    WICKET- Dottin c Taylor b Brunt 4 (WI 31-6)

    England recall Katherine Brunt as they look to remove the big-hitting Dottin. "I was in the field once when Brunt bowled to Dottin, and I just wanted to run away!" laughs Ebony on TMS, as Dottin swings at her first ball and swings it over mid-wicket for four! The next ball is blocked, but Dottin's cameo innings ends with her third delivery as she's caught behind - Brunt strikes again!

  141.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Dottin has the ability to hit big boundaries, but do you play your natural game here, or try to dig in and go against your natural game?"

  142. 14 overs: 
    APPEAL - NOT OUT- WI 27-5

    If you're just joining this, you're not misreading the score. West Indies are 27-5 - that's twenty-seven for five. (Just because the game's not on TV, I'm not making these scores up!). Deandra Dottin is the new batter - we know she can hit the ball miles, and holds the record for the quickest T20 international century (male or female) - but she's got a very different innings to play now if West Indies are to avoid anything other than a humiliating defeat. Marsh appeals for lbw against Knight, who's having to play the anchor role here, but the umpire is unmoved.

  143.   
    Charles Dagnall, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "This could be a short day today, we may even get to the India-Sri Lanka game at the Cricket Club of India!"

  144. 13.2 overs: 
    WICKET- Aguilleira run out (Greenway/Marsh) 4 (WI 27-5)

    England turn to spin in the persona of BBC Sport columnist Laura Marsh - and there's another breakthrough as Aguilleira attempts a ludicrous single to mid-wicket and is easily thrown out by Lydia Greenway, England's best fielder playing her 100th ODI!

  145. 13 overs: 
    MISSED STUMPING- WI 26-4

    Knight knocks a single, and we finally have our first boundary of the match as Gunn strays with her width and Aguilleira gets off the mark in style with a four through the covers. The next ball is speared down the leg side, it's signalled as a wide but Sarah Taylor behind the stumps doesn't take it cleanly and the stumping chance is missed as Aguilleira is back in her crease by the time Taylor removes the bails.

  146.   
    Charles Dagnall, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "The scoreboards here are a bit like on a village green, with metal numbers being put up."

  147. 12 overs: 
    WI 20-4

    While Charles and Ebony on TMS discuss a miracle "slimming tea" he's seen advertised on Indian TV, the Windies add a couple of leg byes while Aguilleira nearly gloves one down the leg side as Shrubsole holds her head in frustration. England are continuing to dominate here.

    Sam Sheringham, BBC Sport

    "England have wrapped up a straightforward 46-run victory in their Twenty20 tour match against a New Zealand XI in Whangerai. The hosts were bowled out for 140 in reply to England's 186-3, with Jade Dernbach, Chris Woakes and hat-trick hero Stuart Broad taking three wickets apiece."

  149. 11 overs: 
    WI 18-4

    Brunt takes a rest after five overs and England turn to the medium-fast seam of Jenny Gunn. "I'd have been tempted to give Brunt another little blast," notes Daggers on TMS. Knight pushes her for a three into the deep she has 11 of the Windies' first 17 runs - while captain Aguilleira looks a bit nervy at this stage. Gunn sends down a wide, but otherwise it's a decent opening over.

  150. 10 overs: 
    WI 14-4

    Captain Merissa Aguilleira is the new batter for West Indies, she's going to need to be a genie in a bottle to dig her side out of the hole they've been in ever since she decided to bat first, which in terms of toss decisions already smacks of Nasser Hussain choosing to field first at Brisbane in 2002. A double wicket maiden for the delighted Shrubsole, who has figures of 5-2-7-3.

  151. 9.4 overs: 
    WICKET- Nero lbw b Shrubsole 0 (WI 14-4)

    With no TV pictures, not only are we not sure who the new batter is, the TMS crew at the ground aren't either... but whoever she is, she doesn't last long as Shrubsole traps her lbw! In fact, it's Juliana Nero - and while their batters are fiddling around, West Indies' Super Six hopes are burning...

  152.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "My gut feeling was that that may have been a bump ball, but it's hard to tell when you're not out there in the field."

  153. 9.2 overs: 
    WICKET- Campbelle c Marsh b Shrubsole 2 (WI 14-3)

    Shrubsole keeps Campbelle on the front foot, she appears to lob up a catch to square leg, the umpires confer as it may have been a bump ball. England celebrate... and Campbelle's gone!

  154.   
    Sam Sheringham, BBC Sport

    "I think we can officially declare that Stuart Broad is back. He has just taken a hat-trick in the penultimate over of England's tour match in Whangerai, completing a triple-wicket maiden to put the tourists on the brink of victory."

  155. 9 overs: 
    WI 14-2

    Brunt has two slips in for Knight, who only made her international debut last month and guides a two to backward square leg. Good line and length by the Barnsley pace bowler, and we have news of some drama in England's T20 warm-up game in Whangarei...

  156.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "Further round, palms trees droop lazily over where deep cover would be standing and, behind them, loom the curved, reflective towers of Mumbai's financial district. The tranquil atmosphere is spoiled a little by the noise of construction of what looks like will be the largest structure in the area - a sign of India's development."

  157. 8 overs: 
    WI 12-2

    Charles Dagnall on TMS has noticed a similarity in Anya Shrubsole's bowling with Andre Nel, the chuntering ex-South Africa pace bowler who also bowled with a fairly open-chested action. Knight pushes a single to Arran Brindle in the covers, it's a no-ball so West Indies have a free hit. With the batters having changed, England can change the field, the free-hit ball is a full toss... Campbelle swings and misses and is "bowled", her stumps splayed, but on a free-hit ball, you can only be run out, not dismissed in any other way. But that single and no-ball are the only blemishes on another tight over.

  158.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "West Indies need to find a way off the mark here to rotate the strike. If you look at the way Jhulan Goswami played for India the other day, she came out of her crease a little to negate a bit of the bounce and swing, so West Indies might want to try that."

  159. 7 overs: 
    WI 10-2

    West Indies belatedly reach double figures with another Knight single, Campbelle is beaten as Brunt continues to find a bit of movement away from the right-hander.

  160.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Anya's looking like the more dominant bowler today, she's beating the bat and the batters aren't getting their feet to the ball."

  161. 6 overs: 
    WI 9-2

    Knight looks for a quick single against Shrubsole but is sent back by her partner Campbelle, then Knight - who hails from Barbados - is left swishing at thin air as Shrubsole finds a bit of movement and then deceives her with a slower ball. Knight eventually breaks the deadlock of dot balls with a single.

  162.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "This really is a magnificent ground. As Katherine Brunt bowls, I sit in the press tent which is positioned at long leg for a right-handed batter. Behind Brunt stands the beautiful pavilion, stretching around from long on to long off, reminiscent of the grand clubhouses you might see at an American golf course. Two-tiered, stone pillars, huge windows, with clocks atop the turrets at each end."

  163. 5 overs: 
    WI 8-2

    Prakash and Ebony on TMS note that England batter Lydia Greenway is celebrating her 100th ODI appearance today as she's quickly in to field. Campbelle is unable to pierce the infield, and Brunt matches Shrubsole by bowling a maiden over as England remain on top.

  164.   
    Charles Dagnall, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    On Twitter: "Stunned by decision of WI captain to bat first here at BKC."

  165. 4 overs: 
    WI 8-2

    The Windies pair are looking to get forward to Shrubsole, but the Somerset seamer completes a maiden over. Ebony on TMS wonders how long England can "maximise the opportunity" to put the squeeze on while the ball's hooping around.

  166.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "Bigger celebrations from England from the Taylor wicket, lots of hand-clapping and whoops of delight. The girls in blue are full of energy - what a difference a win makes."

  167. 3 overs: 
    WI 8-2

    With the ball swinging around at this early stage, Brunt finds Campbelle's outside edge but it's safely to third man for a single. The left-handed Knight marks her guard, working a single off her legs.

    And if you're struggling to find a scorecard for this game, I can point you to the place we've found with the most quickly updated card - take a look at the cricket section on BBC digital text (the artist formerly known as Ceefax) on your TV, as it's being updated quicker than anything on the web...

    Sam Sheringham, BBC Sport

    "England's tour of New Zealand has kicked off a day late following yesterday's washout and it's going well for the tourists against a New Zealand XI in Whangarei. England made 186-3 from their 20 overs, with Jos Buttler finishing 57 not out from 24 balls and Eoin Morgan 48 not out from 32. Chris Woakes has taken two wickets to reduce the home side to 87-4 after 12 overs."

  169. 2 overs: 
    WI 6-2

    Kyshona Knight - twin sister of the departed opener Kycia - is off the mark with a two, but the Windies are reeling here.

  170.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "England look pumped up, Taylor was the one they wanted after she scored 171 against Sri Lanka in the last game."

  171. 1.3 overs: 
    WICKET- Taylor b Shrubsole 0 (WI 4-2)

    Anya Shrubsole takes the second over, Campbelle nudges a single to third man and witht the ball moving around a bit, Shrubsole sends down another wide, but then the big-hitting Stafanie Taylor loses her leg stump, driving over another full delivery from Shrubsole!

  172.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "England know the importance of making inroads into this West Indies betting line-up and there was a big double fisted celebration from Brunt as she squeezed that yorker under Knight's bat. There were some rumours going around that the Windies' aren't in the best physical shape after two games in three days, so their decision to field bat first may have something to do with that."

  173.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "I sense that the Windies will be two or three down very quickly and completely regretting this decision to bat first."

  174. 1 over: 
    WI 2-1

    Shemaine Campbelle is the new batter, she's off the mark with a single, but a great start by England.

  175. 0.4 overs: 
    WICKET- Kycia Knight b Brunt 0 (WI 1-1)

    Brunt opens with a legside wide, but then makes an early breakthrough with the third ball, bowling Kycia Knight with a brute of a yorker!

  176. 0329: 

    Stafanie Taylor and Kycia Knight are opening the batting for West Indies - with Katherine Brunt no doubt champing at the bit to run in and open the bowling.

  177.   
    Stephan Shemilt, BBC Sport in Mumbai

    "A walk across the outfield at this picturesque ground in the middle of Mumbai's financial district shows that there is a lot of morning moisture. England will be looking to use that to make dents in the powerful Windies batting line-up."

  178.   
    Charles Dagnall, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Anya Shrubsole's been passed fit after going off injured in the last game, she'll be hoping to get her full 10 overs under her belt. It takes a brave person to change a winning side, but I wondered if England may have picked spinner Danni Hazell today, If it does turn today, we won't be able to tell you as our commentary position is over extra cover."

  179.   
    Ebony Rainford-Brent, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Katherine Brunt should get some movement here, and there should be something in it for the spinners, so good luck to West Indies for batting in these early morning conditions. Brunt will be raring to go and should have a massive impact. Will this [toss] decision be significant to West Indies by the end of the game?"

  180. 0320: 
    TEAM NEWS

    England are unchanged from the side which beat India, while West Indies have brought in Subrina Munroe and Tremayne Smartt in place of Shakera Selman and Anisa Mohammed.

  181.  

    England captain Charlotte Edwards on TMS: "We were definitely going to bowl today. It looks a good wicket with a quick outfield and a small ground, so we don't know what a good score will be here. We've set the standard the other day, we now need to maintain that standard throughout the competition."

  182. 0315: 

    The good folk of Test Match Special are up and running on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra - and they'll be your (and my) lifeline to today's game at the Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai, as this match is not on television - so keep your radio turned up and we'll keep you posted.

  183. 0314: 

    Briefly, from England's point of view, win and they're through - lose, and they'll be waiting on the result of India-Sri Lanka. But with Sri Lanka's net run rate significantly worse than all the other teams', a defeat for them by any margin would pretty much rule them out of contention. But as India's NRR is currently better than England's, the nightmare scenario for the defending champions would be to lose to West Indies, and then watch Sri Lanka narrowly beat India - as that permutation would most likely eliminate England.

  184.   
    Prakash Wakankar, BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    On Twitter: "Windies win the toss and bat! That is surprise. Wicket looks greenish will help bowlers early on is the general consensus."

  185. 0309: 

    The results of the first few Group A games mean that all four teams are level on points in the table, all having won one and lost one. So in one respect, it's simple - whoever wins today's two games will qualify, along with one of the two losers, which will be decided on net run-rate.

  186. 0307: 
    TOSS

    West Indies win the toss and will bat first. England captain Charlotte Edwards is out of luck, having lost the toss in all three games.

  187. 0305: 

    Morning, everyone - it's time for the final round of group matches in the Women's World Cup, and there are some fairly complicated permutations to be resolved in Group A.
