Before then, there's the small matter of the first Test between England and South Africa at Lord's. We'll be here bright and early tomorrow morning. See you then.

That means that Australia and India are level at the top of the table on eight points, with England tucked into third on six. They meet the Aussies on Sunday.

Elsewhere, Australia and India have recorded wins and are on the brink of the semi-finals.

Australia have beaten Pakistan by 159 runs and India have edged out Sri Lanka by 16 runs.

South Africa were never likely to chase that total but they wanted to get as many as possible, not just for net run rate reason, but for psychological reasons. They've never been this close to a side like England.

They hit seven sixes to England's one. It's not often you'll do that and lose.

England will be far more worried about their bowling and fielding. They dropped catches and conceded a lot of runs to this South Africa side. Those are areas they'll need to look at before taking on Australia.

South Africa captain Dane van Niekerk: "After a while it got a bit long, but all credit to Tammy and Sarah. They batted us out of the game.

"It was difficult, but hindsight isn't the best. We have been relying on her pace bowlers, but the English batters played really well. We took too long to adapt to the conditions."

England captain Heather Knight: "What a game. It was a brilliant day, but not to be bowler. We're really chuffed.

"I got a lot of pad rash. Sarah was outstanding and we're pleased that Tammy got a score.

"The batting line-up is really firing at the moment and it's really nice to have all those players in form. We're felling like we're getting some momentum."

Player of the match Sarah Taylor: "It was nice to get to 50 the other day and contribute today. It was really nice to get that partnership with Tammy.

"The wickets are good and the outfields are fast. If you stay in there play your game, you get the runs. I've learned about myself and about my game.

"You want to contribute every game. We'll enjoy today and look to the next game."

Taylor and Beamount were outstanding. They played all around the wicket and South Africa can learn from those innings as they were lacking a bit of discipline at times.

It was a frustrating bowling performance by South Africa - 100 runs were scored behind the wickets as opposed to 50 in an average game. So they didn't react well to where England were scoring their runs.

South Africa are in a huddle on the outfield. After chasing leather in the sun earlier today, that's probably the last place they want to to be.

This is the highest-ever aggregate of runs in a women's ODI - 678 runs in the day.

A convincing victory for England on the back of two fabulous centuries by Sarah Taylor and Tammy Beaumont.

But South Africa gave them a run for their money at times with a few entertaining knocks.

A run-fest of the likes we have not seen in international cricket this summer.

England win by 68 runs

SA 305-9

That is your lot. Number 11 Moseline Daniels pushed back the final two balls, ending a pretty incredible game. England win by 68 runs and now perhaps only need one more win to reach the semi-finals.

Charlotte Edwards

Another one caught on the deep mid-wicket boundary, the ever-present Nat Sciver out there takes a comfortable catch.

A nice little innings by Luus but England close to an emphatic win. Probably one of the best wickets we've ever seen in a women's game.

WICKET

Luus c Sciver b Hartley 20 (SA 302-9)

Everyone winning here. Except for Sune Luus. A slog-sweep ends up in the hands of Nat Sciver on the leg-side fence. Alex Hartley has a wicket to stick in her pocket.

Charles Dagnall

The 300 is brought up and Charlotte Edwards celebrates next to me - her side no longer have that record of the most runs conceded in an ODI.

Although a 220-run defeat is worse than this.

SA 302-8

This, by the way, is the first time that England have conceded 300 in an ODI. By the time we're done we're going to have seen the best part of 700 runs. One to go. Start the car.

The highest score against England in an ODI is 299-2 by Australia in 2000.

I remember that day unfortunately. It was so hot, Belinda Clark scored 146 and I got a golden duck.

Paul Farbrace was coaching us then - he'd have a good story to tell about that game.

Charles Dagnall: You took 40 overs to score 79 all out in reply! Forty overs! That's a painstaking innings.

SA 292-8

England look to be seeing this one through with spin - Alex Hartley the latest to emerge from behind the sofa now that Tryon has been despatched. The South Africa dugout cuts a gloomy scene. Two overs to go in the most run-hungry women's ODI of all time.

Charles Dagnall

BBC Test Match Special

What fun it was watching Tryon. South Africa can be pretty pleased with this effort. They won't win so that will disappoint them greatly but there really are some positives to take for South Africa.

Charlotte Edwards

Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

Unfortunately she picked out the tallest player in the England team in Jenny Gunn at mid-off, but South Africa are showing good intent right until the end and that's all you can ask.

WICKET

Ismail c sub (Gunn) b Knight 0 (SA 285-8)

The late-order procession continues. Shabnim Ismail drives Heather Knight to Jenny Gunn at mid-off, the sub fielder making amends for her earlier drop by taking the catch above her head.

Charlotte Edwards

Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

Hazell doing what she does best there, bowling straight at the stumps and I don't think there will be any problems with that. It looked to be hitting middle.

WICKET

Kapp lbw Hazell 3 (SA 280-7)

They'll go quickly now. Marizanne Kapp is the latest, sweeping at Danni Hazell and being hit in front. It's been an excellent effort by South Africa, but they are falling away.

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

Fran Wilson is up there with England's best fielders and she's shown why there with a terrific catch.

WICKET

Du Preez c Wilson b Knight 43 (SA 275-6)

From not being able to catch a cold, England are snaffling everything that goes airborne now. Mignon du Preez swings for the fences, but only finds a sliding Fran Wilson, the who takes a smart catch coming in off the leg-side boundary. This one is pretty much done now.

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

On a different day, that would have been a game-changing knock. She epitomised what this tournament is about - entertainment.

WICKET

Tryon c Knight b Hazell 54 (SA 273-5)

It was fun while it lasted, but one suspects that South Africa's last hope has just departed with Chloe Tryon. Looking for another wallop through the leg side, she picks out Heather Knight at mid-wicket.

Dan Norcross

BBC Test Match Special

I wonder if Mark Robinson is watching this and wishing he'd selected Jenny Gunn.

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

I wonder if it's worth bringing on Nat Sciver to bowl. She can mix it up with her pace and lengths.

50 for Chloe Tryon

SA 273-4

Good lord, Tryon hits it a long way. There's an argument to say that she should have been in earlier. Hazell is twice walloped over cow corner, the second an absolute monster. That brings up a 25-ball half-century.

SA 257-4

England are going through their options, this time with skipper Heather Knight kicking her heels up to deliver her off-breaks. To be honest, it doesn't really matter who is bowling, because Tryon is looking to launch everything into orbit. A one-bounce four over mid-wicket, 10 from the over.

How's stat?!

Phil Long

TMS statistician

This is the first women's one-day international with more than 600 runs in it.

SA 247-4

Target 374

England coach Mark Robinson is on the boundary edge, having a chat with Nat Sciver. Danni Hazell is bowling her off-breaks round the wicket while Sarah Taylor bangs her gloves together in encouragement. Mignon du Preez swipes through mid-wicket for four, but eight from the over is a good return for England.

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

Chloe Tryon is not giving this one up. I love that she is hitting straight. She's really showing her power.

SA 239-4

Target 374

I say a minor miracle, but England will want to see the back of Chloe Tryon pretty quickly. A straight six, then four more off Alex Hartley. The way she is hitting, both the umpire and the non-striker are in danger. 15 an over required, 15 come off this set.

SA 224-4

South Africa will need plenty more of those overs worth 20 to get back in this match. The thing is, though, 20-run overs don't really come along very often. Danni Hazell's next set only costs three. 150 needed from the final 10. A minor cricketing miracle.

SA 221-4

Oh hello, Chloe Tryon. The new arrival launches Anya Shrubsole downtown for a straight maximum. That's after a boundary and a couple of singles, then followed by a full toss that Sarah Taylor can't gather. Four byes. Then four down the ground! 20 off the over.

Australia have all-but sealed another victory in the competition, reducing Pakistan to 109-7 after 42 overs in reply to 290-8. Kristen Beams has three wickets, but it's Jess Jonassen who has eye-catching bowling figures - 10-6-12-1.

At Derby, Sri Lanka need another 115 runs from 12.4 overs to beat India. They have seven wickets in hand, so it's game on there.

Van Niekerk will be disappointed she couldn't put that away. Hazell followed the batter though, seeing her come down the wicket and dropping it in short.
