  1. Farewell

    As the groundstaff ironically take away the covers and let the rain water the square, a chance to tell you about the next action in the tournament, which, weather permitting, will be South Africa against New Zealand at Derby.

    As ever there will be clips and commentary available here on the BBC website. England's next match is on Sunday against Sri Lanka at Taunton so please do join the team then.

    But in the meanwhile, from the three of us, happy travels and cheerio now.

  2. MATCH ABANDONED - ENGLAND WIN BY 107 RUNS UNDER DLS

    Finally we have an announcement and there will be no further play today. England gain their first win of the tournament, Pakistan remain without a victory.

  3. Post update

    The umpires have wandered slowly out to chat with the gaggle of groundstaff and they are making their way back again now. Is an announcement due?

  4. Post update

    On a separate issue, does anyone know if the A34 is closed tonight?

  5. Highlights

    There was just time for Ayesha to complete an assured half century before the rain descended.

  6. Highlights

    England's fielding was not always of the highest order, there were dropped catches, overthrows and this missed chance of a run-out.

  7. Highlights

    Left-arm spinner Alex Hartley struck in her opening over when she dismissed Asmavia Iqbal lbw for five in the 18th, leaving Pakistan at 67-3. There was no chance of a review with no DRS today, and the batter was not overly impressed with the umpire's decision from Jacqueline Williams.

  8. Highlights

    Ayesha was beginning to play with delightful freedom and kept the boundaries coming.

  9. Update

    Just hearing an announcement from the public address system at the ground. I was expecting it to be the end of the match but the announcer remains hopeful, even if he is one of the few remaining people in the ground, and he says the umpires are continuing to consult with the groundstaff.

    In the meantime, it's on with the highlights.

  10. Highlights

    Katherine Brunt conceded 24 runs in her first two overs in the opening match of the tournament against India, but she collected a second wicket in the ninth over today with a delightfully concealed slower ball.

  11. Highlights

    Ayesha Zafar impressed for Pakistan, however, and struck a liberal number of boundaries. Here is an impressive pull shot off Anya Shrubsole.

  12. Highlights

    England finished with 377-7, Knight and Sciver compiling 213 together in 30 overs. Pakistan then lost Nahida Khan to Katherine Brunt in the third over of their reply.

  13. Highlights

    As we note Kumar Sangakkara passing 1,000 Championship runs for the season, the great Sri Lankan left-hander would have been proud of some of the strokeplay shown by Sciver, who dispatched three successive sixes.

  14. Highlights

    Her captain celebrated her own century two overs later, from 105 balls with her 11th four.

  15. Highlights

    Sciver was the first to three figures, reaching her maiden ODI hundred from 76 balls in the 37th over.

  16. Highlights

    And some bigger hits too.

  17. Highlights

    There were some audacious touches from the captain.

  18. Highlights

    Sciver reached her fifty from 35 balls in the 23rd over, striking four fours in the over as the runs began not just to flow, but to cascade.
