Goodbye for now

New Zealand beat Australia by six wickets

That's it from this page for now, but don't forget there's plenty of cricket still to come today from BBC Sport. You can catch the closing moments from day two of MCC v Yorkshire by clicking here, or follow Australia v Bangladesh from 13:30 GMT in the men's World Twenty20 here

New Zealand win by 6 wickets

It's all over. New Zealand's Amy Satterthwaite sends the ball towards third man and gets the run they need. Australia have been comprehensively beaten in Delhi. 


New Zealand 103-4

New Zealand, so close to confirming the victory, lose the wicket of Sophie Devine. 

New Zealand hit Devine fours

New Zealand 97-3

Ok, so the pun was a little obvious but Sophie Devine has hit two superb fours. It's a matter of when, not if, for New Zealand to win this match now. 

New Zealand 84-3

The White Ferns are just looking to calm things down a little after the loss of three wickets. Sophie Devine, star with the ball when bowling earlier, hits a lovely four as New Zealand close in on that target of 104 to win. 


New Zealand 74-3

Hold up, the wickets are falling quite rapidly here now. McGlashan steps up the wicket to attempt the hit the spin bowling of Osborne down the ground, she misses it and Healy stumps her. 


New Zealand 62-2.

The second opener falls as Suzie Bates is run out. Australia can gain some confidence from this. 


New Zealand 58-1

A slower delivery from Beams and Priest goes for another sweep. This time it's hit up off the top edge towards mid-wicket where Alex Blackwell takes the catch. Can Australia find a way back into the match?


New Zealand 57-0

Not the best way to start the eight over if you're Australian. Suzie Bates is joining Rachel Priest in knocking the ball around the ground and sends the ball for six. 

New Zealand 51-0

New Zealand have moved into a very comfortable position now. The sixth over ended with a brilliant six from Rachel Priest. The half-century partnership between Bates and Priest has come off 42 balls.

New Zealand 31-0

It's a solid opening stand from Suzie Bates and Rachel Priest. Bates has since hit her first boundary, but  Priest has stolen the show - two fours in two balls and a third lofted past mid-on with the final ball of the over sees the White Ferns move on to 31-0.

New Zealand 14-0

Well, this is a lot more comfortable than the Australian innings. Bates and Priest are collecting the runs nicely between them, playing the ball well. Bates is on eight, Priest is on six with thanks to a lofted four over mid-on.

New Zealand's innings begin

New Zealand 1-0

New Zealand's impressive bowling, as well as Australia's poor batting, means the White Ferns have been set 104 to win. The first ball is swept away towards long leg and Bates is off and running. 1-0.

Max Baggins-Craig: Bit of a slow start and shame Australia have been caught out a little, but I've the confidence they'll be just fine - c'mon Aussie's!

Theo Bowyer: Australia 4 for 4 has a satisfying ring on a Monday morning!

Australia 103-8

Australia end their innings just over the 100 mark. Not the 140 that captain Meg Lanning was hoping for at the toss, and a lot of work for the bowlers to do when they return to the field. 


Australia 96-8

What a catch!! Sophie Devine diving superbly to take the wicket of Megan Schlutt. A flat hit down the ground towards long on and Devine has to run forward, dive to the floor before catching it down to her left hand side. Bravo!

Australia 96-7

Australia are trying to end their innings on a high note. Mooney has exploited that third man boundary twice in this over as the century doesn't seem an unrealistic target any more. This is remembering that earlier the Aussies were 4-4


Australia 84-7

Jess Jonassen is the next to fall in quick succession for Australia. She attempts a full swing at the ball but completely misses it and the ball hits the wicket. 


Australia 80-6

Key wicket for New Zealand as Ellyse Perry falls to the bowling of Sophie Devine for 42. Devine bowls the ball without too much turn, Perry advances up the wicket and goes down to sweep it, misses and the ball comes off her thigh. LBW given by the umpire.

First six of the match

Australia 57-5

Australia are now racking up the runs. Ellyse Perry moves onto 32 with a lovely six towards deep mid-wicket. 

Aus 50-5

Ellyse Perry, the dual football and cricket international, is playing a lone hand for Australia here. Ponytail poking out of the back of her helmet, she pulls the off-spin of Amy Satterthwaite for four.

Sanjay Manjrekar

Former India batsman

"New Zealand must have planned this the moment they were slated to play Australia in Nagpur. They've bowled 10 overs of spin out of 12."


Australia 30-5

Speak to soon, Mike! Bermingham bowls a ball with fantastic turn on it and despite the shuffle across from Blackwell she's beaten and the ball hits the off stump. The partnership is over and Australia are really up against it now. 


Australia 27-4

Australia will be thankful they are not all out after the start they made. They were 4-4 very early on but since then there's been a careful partnership between Ellyse Perry and Alex Blackwell. At this rate expect a total of only 50 or 60 runs.


Australia 17-4

Finally something to celebrate for Australia after their dreadful start. Kasperek bowls the ball to Blackwell, who is now settling her side down. It's swept away for four and Australia have their first boundary of the match. 

Australia 11-4

Finally, things calm down a little for Australia. They've managed to gain seven runs since the last wicket, Perry on 6, Blackwell on 2. Meg Lanning targeted 140 before play started, what she'd give for that now!


Australia 4-4

Wow! Australia are showing exactly how not to play Twenty20 here. Erin Osborne plays for a bit of turn and the ball sneaks away to get the outside edge, and is caught by wicketkeeper Rachel Priest, again it's Kasperek bowling.


Australia 2-3

It's a disastrous start for the Aussies. Captain Meg Lanning is run out by a mile. The ball was knocked to mid wicket but hesitation sees her sent packing. 


Australia 2-2

Oh dear Australia. This time it's the second opener to go as Alyssa Healy walks back to the pavilion. Caught again by Tahuhu in a similar mid-on position. Disaster for Australia.


Australia 2-1

Elyse Villani is out for a duck, a shot played up towards mid-on and comfortably caught by Tahuhu off the bowling of Kasperek.

Here we go!

Australia Women v New Zealand Women

First ball of the day is bowled, with Elyse Villani and Alyssa Healy opening up for Australia. Morna Nielsen is bowling for New Zealand.

Australia win toss and choose to bat

Australia Women v New Zealand Women

Australia women have won the toss and will bat first in Delhi.

Meg Lanning, Australia captain said: "Hopefully we will put up a good score and defend it. Our last couple of games we have got confidence from. The confidence is high in the group. One change, Farrell goes out. We'll aim for 140 to start off with and then adjust."


Australia Women v New Zealand Women

It's nice and sunny in Delhi this morning with play getting under way at 10:00 GMT. Although some games in this tournament have been hampered by rain, so far both these teams have played full 20-over matches, and we expect more of the same today.

Conditions in Dehli
