As one series ends...

And that's about it from us - England's women now take on Pakistan in three Twenty20 internationals at Bristol (Sun 3 July), Southampton (Tue 5 July) and Chelmsford (Thu 7 July). TMS will have commentary on all three games.

Before then, the men are back in action on Wednesday as they play the fourth of five ODIs against Sri Lanka at The Oval. It's a day-nighter starting at 13:00 BST, and I hope you'll join us then.

Bye for now - and well played Tammy Beaumont.

ICC Women's Championship table

Here's a look at the points table - with those six precious points from the 3-0 series win helping England secure third place. There are still plenty of points to play for though - as they face away series in West Indies and Sri Lanka later this year.

Watch: England win by 202 runs

And here's the moment England won the game as Brunt hit the stumps for the fourth time.

Champagne moment (a literal one!)

Captain Heather Knight picks up the series trophy from Somerset CEO Guy Lavender after their 3-0 clean sweep.

And it's finally time for them to start spraying the champagne. Knight is completely and utterly drenched, while Danielle Wyatt does her best to make sure no-one escapes un-sprayed.

Watch: Brunt takes second wicket in two balls

Here's the third of those four clean-bowleds - Brunt rearranges the furniture of Maham Tariq.

Captain's view

'Different people have stood up'

England captain Heather Knight: "Captaincy is easy when the girls play like that! The pleasing thing is how many different people have stood up and contributed. It's exciting cricket to watch and hopefully it will be same going forward.

"There was a lot of change and talk about our batting order and I can't be more pleased how we responded. It was different tactics with bigger boundaries and we adapted well. 

"Katherine Brunt bowled well and cleaned up the tail, and Laura Marsh did well too. Laura reads the game superbly and changes her pace up smartly as well."

Watch: Brunt bowls Yousuf

Here's the second of those four clean-bowleds by Brunt - the unlucky batter being Sadia Yousuf.

Player of the match

England opener Tammy Beaumont: "I knew I was pretty close but I wasn't really thinking about Charlotte Edwards' batting record. Obviously I've been working hard since we got back from India. I've been batting well all season and not necessarily got the big scores but today it clicked. 

"I started pretty slowly in my innings and credit to Pakistan as they came back with different plans so I had to change my game. The T20s should be an exciting series now and I'm looking forward to that."

Captain's view

Pakistan captain Sana Mir: "All credit to England for the way they have played throughout the series. if you're not on target, you will be punished. We knew the England bowlers are pretty good, it was difficult for us to chase such a big total and it was important for us to bat 50 overs which we've been unable to do.

"We've not been able to play a lot of one-day cricket, we're more into T20 and hopefully we can take the positives out of this sries and play well in the T20s."

Katherine Brunt fans: Here's the first of her four clean-bowled dismissals this afternoon...

Player of the match

It's... Tammy Beaumont. Shock.

Player of the match: presentation coming up

So, a rather straightforward choice for player of the match (and no doubt the series) in Tammy Beaumont.

But there were some other stand-out performances today, Georgia Elwiss, Natalie Sciver and Lauren Winfield all contributed with the bat, while Laura Marsh bowled well and Katherine Brunt's demolition of the tail was great to watch.

Five-wicket haul

So to give you Katherine Brunt's final bowling figures, she finished with 9.5-0-30-5 - and England have won by a mere 202 runs.

And there was only a two-run spread of Pakistan's totals - they scored 165, 166 and 164.

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

"Katherine Brunt looks back to her best, bowling well and taking wickets and has variety as well.

"We've seen a lot from this England team over the past few games which we haven't seen in recent times which is really encouraging going forward. 

"Mark Robinson is taking the team in the right direction. They are driving forward and hopefully take this form into the T20s now."

The England players leave the field to applause from the Taunton faithful, shaking hands with the beaten Pakistan players as they go. Plenty of hugs from the England non-combatants and coaching staff as they head towards the Andrew Caddick Pavilion.

WICKET - Iqbal b Brunt 16 (Pak 164 all out)

Full, fast, straight, Iqbal has her stumps rearranged, Brunt has her first five-for since 2011 and England have won to sweep the series 3-0! Job done.

Pak 164-9

The hat-trick's gone, but the five-for (which would be her first since July 2011) is still on. Bowl straight at Amin, and she might get it. But the number 11 manages to edge a single to third man, to the bowler's frustration... Brunt only has three balls left of her spell.

Pak 163-9

Oddly, no close fielders in place - but the hat-trick ball is a loopy delivery outside off stump which Iqbal easily deflects away for a single.

So, Brunt on a hat-trick...

Pak 162-9

Anya Shrubsole into the attack, Iqbal moves quickly to get off strike with a single which exposes number 11 Anam Amin to the strike. Amin doesn't look too confident with bat in hand, but defends her stumps successfully before swiping a single over the keeper's shoulder to third man. An Iqbal single means she will face the hat-trick ball.

As well as survival, Pakistan may have another target in their sights - their highest score of the series, having made 165 at Leicester and 166 at Worcester. Will it be 167 here? Or 168 (now known as "a Beaumont" in women's cricket)? Or even more?

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

"It would be so good for Katherine Brunt to get a chance at this hat-trick because she hasn't been in among the wickets recently. She's gone away and worked on a few different things and it's paid off. If she gets that hat-trick she'll probably give us the greatest celebration of all-time!"

WICKET - Tariq b Brunt 0 (Pak 159-9)

Fast, full, straight does the job for Brunt again and Tariq loses her middle stump first ball!

So two in two for Brunt, who has 4-28 from nine. However, that was the last ball of the over, so she needs Pakistan to survive another over in order to have a chance of a hat-trick - and a five-for!

WICKET - Yousuf b Brunt 0 (Pak 159-8)

With tail-ender Yousuf backing away timidly towards square leg, Brunt provides the classic fast bowler's dismissal to a nervous lower-order batter - fast, full and straight, and it clatters into Yousuf's off stump. Three wickets for Brunt.

Charlotte Edwards

Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

"That was a good end to Alex Hartley's bowling. She's come back with decent figures from her last five overs which were much better after some early nerves."

Pak 158-7 (Hartley 10-0-53-0)

Now then, it's Alex Hartley's last over, from the River End. A single brings new batter Sadia Yousuf (a fellow slow left-armer) on strike. A slip in place. But Yousuf plays out five dot balls and debutant Hartley takes a few pats on the back from team-mates as her spell finishes.

Charlotte Edwards

Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

"I feel like Katherine has got a wicket there with a new slower ball. It looked slightly different with the wicketkeeper stood up. She'll be pleased with that and Katherine taking wickets breeds confidence into the rest of the side."

WICKET - Mir b Brunt 29 (Pak 157-7)

Bowled! With keeper Amy Jones up to the stumps, Katherine Brunt does for Pakistan captain Sana Mir with what the TMS crew think was a slower ball with some late inswing. Brunt celebrates flamboyantly, as she always does.

Pak 153-6 (target 367)

Anya Shrubsole's back on the field, having departed after that juggling catch, and Hartley re-ties her hair before beginning her ninth over. Mir pulls a full toss for four, while Wyatt at mid-wicket dives well to cut off another aggressive heave from the Pakistan skipper, who lofts a single down to long-on.

We're into the last 10 overs - a theoretical 214 needed from those 10. With the emphasis on theoretical.

Charlotte Edwards

Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

"Alex Hartley has been brought into the side to try to take wickets. Unfortunately she's not quite had the breaks today because of a combination of factors with nerves being a part of that.

"However, she'll be better for playing this game and with the winter England have with trips to the West Indies and Sri Lanka she will have a part to play. I think she just needs to get that first wicket. Hopefully she'll bowl out here and get it."

Pak 148-6 (Mir 22, Iqbal 9)

England turn back to the pace of Katherine Brunt, can the Barnsley speedster clean up the Pakistan tail? Iqbal is on the defensive, before turning her wrists to nudge a four off her legs and steer a two through point.

Watch: Laura Marsh takes her third wicket

Here's Anya Shrubsole's juggling act at mid-on which removed Nida Dar.

Laura Marsh takes her third wicket

Pak 142-6 (Hartley 8-0-47-0)

Still Hartley must wait for that wicket. Four dot balls are followed by a single and a two, edged past the solitary slip. Meanwhile, drinks-carriers Kate Cross and Danielle Hazell share a joke in the England dug-out.

Pak 139-6 (Marsh 10-1-29-3)

Time for Laura Marsh's last over. As a former seamer, she has rather a long run-up for an off-spinner, but it's been mightily effective today. Sana Mir paddle-sweeps a single to backward square leg, Iqbal finds a gap through mid-wicket where Danielle Wyatt is patrolling on the rope, and the last ball of Marsh's spell is... not the last ball of her spell as it disappears down the leg side for five wides. But Marsh can take her cap after a great spell, and she earns a round of applause when the Taunton PA announcer reads out her figures.

Pak 132-6 (Mir 19, Iqbal 1)

Hartley holds her head in frustration as Mir sweeps, doesn't connect properly and they run a couple of leg byes. Amy Jones then removes the bails, appealing for a stumping as Mir leans forward - it's signalled as a wide but Mir had kept her back foot grounded. Debutant Hartley, her fair hair fluttering in a light breeze, has 0-44 from seven overs.

Beaumont goes stratospheric?

Extrapolating from recent trends, we expect Tammy Beaumont to score 450 in the 3rd ODI v Sri Lanka later this year.

Pak 128-6 (Marsh 9-1-22-3)

Asmavia Iqbal is in at eight for Pakistan, the tourists stumble their way through a couple of singles, but it's a case of when England win this game - not if. Marsh is through nine overs of an excellent spell.

Watch: Nawaz bowled by Marsh for 47

Here's the end of Sidra Nawaz's bold innings of 47 as she falls to Laura Marsh.

WICKET - Dar c Shrubsole b Marsh 6 (Pak 126-6)

Dar goes for a big hit, and holes out at mid-on - though it's not a straightforward grab for Anya Shrubsole, who juggles the ball and catches it at the second or third attempt before sinking to her knees in relief. She also leaves the field, replaced temporarily by sub fielder Fran Wilson.
