Coming up next...

As Heather suggests, there's one more match in this series - the third and final ODI takes place at Taunton, one of England's traditional women's cricket strongholds, on Monday. We'll be back here with live text, TMS commentary and match highlights once more. Before then, the men are back in action against Sri Lanka at Edgbaston and Bristol on Friday and Sunday respectively.

Thus ends a day to remember for Lauren Winfield, Tammy Beaumont, Natalie Sciver and - I'm sure in no small part - for England coach Mark Robinson. You can relive a memorable game with the highlights clips on this page - but for now, it's goodbye from us.

Captain's view

More from England skipper Heather Knight: "I always say Nat Sciver is the Ben Stokes of our team and she was brilliant today.

"We’ll head down to Taunton and work on a few things, there is the ICC Championship to play for too so we need to be on our game."

How did you forget about Tuesday's golden duck?

England opener Lauren Winfield: It took a bit of a motorway drive and a lot of stewing last night. Fortunately today I came out and turned it round.

"It was really good to give a platform for the team. And for the others to come in and play like that, like Nat Sciver did. There was some extraordinary hitting there. We’ve done well today and we’ll enjoy it."

ICC Women's Championship standings

Here's how England have risen to third in the ICC Women's Championship table. The top four qualify automatically for next summer's World Cup.

(Joint) player of the match

Tammy Beaumont: "It’s pretty unbelievable. There was a bit of faith to be at the top of the order and it’s paid off."

Lauren Winfield (who was out first ball on Tuesday): "The ups and downs of Lauren Winfield! It shows how quickly the game can change."

Captain's view

More from Pakistan captain Sana Mir: “I didn’t think we could chase that total down. The girls know it pretty well [what to do]. They have themselves lifted this team before. We know how to come back. These kind of games happen. They can happen with any team but we believe in ourselves.”  

Captain's view

England skipper Heather Knight: "I didn’t think it could get any better than yesterday, but today was outstanding. We knew about the record and it was a nice thing to aim for. 

"Boundaries is an area we’ve looked at, we were helped by the small boundaries but the girls still have to put the ball there.It was exciting and we want people to enjoy coming to watch us play."

Captain's view

Pakistan captain Sana Mir: “I think bowling has been our strength and we were off target throughout the 50 overs. This one we need to learn from.

“We need to practice well and I think England played brilliantly today. We need to adapt to conditions quickly. We have the potential to bounce back. I still believe we have a wonderful team."

Player of the match

Lauren Winfield and Tammy Beaumont have been jointly awarded the player of the match award.

Only previous time I can remember it being shared in this manner was the second England-Windies Test at Lord's in 1984, when Gordon Greenidge's breathtaking double hundred wasn't enough to earn him the sole award - it was shared with Ian Botham, who took eight wickets in the first innings (but was wicketless in the second).

Watch: Shrubsole's fourth seals victory

And here's the final wicket of the day, as Anya Shrubsole's fourth wicket sealed a 212-run win.

Full scorecard

Watch: Knight's tumbling catch

Here's the penultimate wicket of the day for you to watch - a tumbling catch by Heather Knight, who retains her 100% win record as England captain.

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

"This is an excellent day for England. They have drawn a line in the sand. After a brilliant start yesterday, to see newer batsmen getting that opportunity and getting hundreds, Nat Sciver showing how destructive she could be. There's no doubt this team can continue on that success. It's just really exciting times."

WICKET - Tariq lbw b Shrubsole 2 (Pkn 166 all out)

All over - Tariq's feet are set in concrete, and she's trapped in front by Anya Shrubsole, who finishes with impressive figures of 8.4-2-19-4.

England win by 212 runs, take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match ODI series, and take two priceless ICC Women's Championship points.

Pkn 166-9

Pakistan's last pair delay the inevitable for another over - and even with defeat looming, Pakistan have reached their highest score against England, the sides having met six times.

Pkn 164-9

Can Shrubsole finish it off this over? Teenager Maham Tariq is Pakistan's number 11, she's off the mark with a single but then plays and misses at the Somerset (and we should also say, Western Storm) seamer. Time to put your coat on and start packing away your sunhat.

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

"On the improvement from Pakistan, in the past they'd have rolled over for under 100. This is them improving. They need to be harder on themselves. They need to push that 200 mark, show that intent, craft those innings."

WICKET - Yousuf c Knight b Shrubsole 1 (Pkn 162-9)

A good diving catch by the skipper at short cover gives the vice-captain her third wicket of the day. This game is nearly done.

Pkn 162-8

Asmavia steers Cross for a couple, before guiding a four just wide of third man, but the runs are largely immaterial.

Five overs left, and one consolation for Pakistan is that this won't be their record defeat - they lost to New Zealand by 408 runs in 1977...

Pkn 156-8

Sadia Yousuf in at number 10. Doesn't look particularly handy with the bat, as a career ODI average of 2.71 indicates. But she survives for now.

It's a wicket maiden for Shrubsole - and with the required rate above 36, Pakistan officially need snookers.

Lydia Greenway

Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

"That looked a bit of a half-hearted shot from Dar - a checked drive. It was not really going over the top or along the floor. Anya will be pleased with that."

WICKET - Dar c Elwiss b Shrubsole 8 (Pkn 156-8)

Anya Shrubsole replaces her new-ball partner Brunt and immediately makes a breakthrough - inducing Dar into a half-hearted shot which gives Elwiss a regulation catch at mid-off.

Lydia Greenway

Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

“Coach Mark Robinson is keen for families and partners to come along to a barbecue tonight and get involved. It's actually a very nice thing to do. The families support all the players so much it's nice to say thank you.”

Pkn 156-7 (Dar 8, Asmavia 1)

Kate Cross to continue - you can read about her thoughts on the new Super League in an interesting piece by our colleagues at BBC Get Inspired - she's not been in the wickets today, but it's a tight over from the young Lancastrian, just a single from it.

Lydia Greenway

Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

"In terms of fielding, a lot of the work we did over the winter was around movement of tennis players, or of football goalkeepers. We looked at the way tennis players serve, or how the goalies face penalties. The first bit of fielding you do in any game sets the tone. Pakistan's spiraled a bit unfortunately for them."

Pkn 155-7 (Brunt 10-2-27-2)

Brunt into her last over, but there's no more progress up the ODI wicket-taking ladder - having seen two of her team-mates dismissed that way, there's no way Asmavia is risking a single to Danielle Wyatt's arm. Brunt finishes with 2-27 - take a bow.

Watch: Nawaz bowled by Brunt

If you love nothing more than seeing a fast bowler splatter the stumps - or if you're a particular fan of Katherine Brunt's work - you'll enjoy watching this.

Pkn 154-7 (target 379)

With the required rate approaching 23 runs per over (and the New Road scoreboard rather cruelly displaying it), Dar lofts a Cross full toss towards deep mid-wicket, Brunt hares round to cut it off and can't take the catch but stops the boundary. Asmavia is off the mark with a single to third man, Dar tickles one to fine leg to pinch the strike.

Alison Mitchell

BBC Test Match Special

"So much of the energy from the game comes from the field. The way Wyatt picks up the ball, and flings it back to the stumps - everyone's on it."

Pkn 151-7

Katherine Brunt in for her ninth over, new batter Asmavia Iqbal is on the defensive and plays out the sixth maiden over of the innings.

As well as being second on the England ODI wicket-taking list, Brunt's also ninth on the all-time world list - as well as Jenny Gunn (120), there's still Cathryn Fitzpatrick (180), Jhulan Goswami (175), Lisa Sthalekar (146), Neetu David (141), Anisa Mohammed (130), Stafanie Taylor (108) and Shashikala Siriwardene (106) above her. And many of those are still playing...

Alison Mitchell

BBC Test Match Special

"Given the way England batted so well, will it take the gloss off if they're not able to exert that authority with the ball?"

Pkn 151-7

Kate Cross is back in the attack, with Amy Jones standing up to the stumps. Nida Dar is off the mark with a four as the game meanders towards a close.

Watch: Deadly Danielle's second run-out

Take a look at Danielle Wyatt's second run-out of the day which spelled the end of Sana Mir's day.

Lydia Greenway

Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

"Katherine will be pleased with that. She's gone a few games without many wickets. She's got couple of wickets now, and she'll be really pleased, as a bowler and especially as an opening bowler. That's what you want to do for the team, take wickets."

WICKET - Nawaz b Brunt 4 (Pkn 146-7)

Nawaz misses, Brunt hits and the Pakistan wicketkeeper is bowled - that's 103 ODI wickets for Brunt, she's now above Clare Taylor (102) on the all-time England list, with only Jenny Gunn (120) above her.

appeal - not outPkn 145-6

Two new batters at the crease, Nawaz belatedly beats the ring of infielders with a cover-driven four, the first boundary for several overs. There's a half-hearted shout for lbw as Nawaz sweeps but can't connect.

Isa Guha

Ex-England seamer on BBC Test Match Special

"It's a huge position for Danielle Wyatt, one that Lydia Greenway previously occupied. It's a tough challenge, but she's managed pretty well. She's a livewire. Every ball she has to be on it, to keep her concentrating. The next thing now is how she catches in that area."

Pkn 140-6 (Brunt 7-0-26-1)

Brunt finishes her over with a dot ball to new batter Nida Dar, who won't look back on this match too fondly after going round the park for 78 from her seven overs, and letting one embarrassing boundary straight through her.

WICKET - Mir run out (Wyatt direct hit) 21 - Pkn 140-6

Gone! She may be batting at number seven and not bowling much these days, but Danielle Wyatt is worth her weight in gold to this side in the field - the bails fly before Mir had grounded her bat behind the line, and the procession continues.
