  1. Post update

    Anyway, we're going to wrap things up here. TMS will be back on air from 19:45 GMT with full commentary on New Zealand v Pakistan. You'll also be able to follow in-play clips.

    Tomorrow, our live text attention turns to England, who face South Africa in St Lucia at 20:00 GMT. Win that, and Heather Knight's side will almost certainly make the semi-finals. Hope you can join us then - bye for now.

    And the target was already beyond Ireland by the time they lost three wickets in successive balls - though the middle one was a run-out, so not credited to the bowler:

    And whoever's involved, who doesn't like a comical run-out?

    There were some brighter moments for Ireland along the way, such as more good seam bowling from Kim Garth and Lucy O'Reilly, and some smart glovework by Mary Waldron:

    It was ultimately a disappointing result for Ireland, despite some encouraging signs - it might have been a very different game had they not dropped Mithali Raj on three and 39, as she went on to make 51:

  7. Captain's view

    India captain Harmanpreet Kaur: "I am happy we qualified but there are still a lot of areas we have to improve. We have to be aggressive in the field and in batting we need to improve. Today we didn't bat according to our plans. If you want to win against Australia you have to be aggressive, both in batting and bowling."

  8. Captain's view

    Ireland captain Laura Delany: "We were superb in the first innings, a couple of chances went down but to keep them to 145 when they made 195 against New Zealand was excellent. We were much sharper in the field today, but our batting has been exposed to a higher level of bowling attack and we're still trying to find the right way with our batting order.

    "Players around the world and people back home have been very supportive towards us over the last few days, we're very grateful to them all."

    Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

    India probably left 15-20 runs out there batting, but they bowled pretty well today. I've seen an improvement from Ireland from their previous game - the bowling, particularly towards the end of the innings with the yorkers and cutters. The stand-out batter for me was Isobel Joyce with the way she moved about her crease and scored boundaries - and Clare Shillington played with the sort of intent it'd be great if they all played with.

    Here's some of those Isobel Joyce boundaries:

    We've got a lot of late wickets to mop up - here's how Shauna Kavanagh was given out lbw after a successful DRS review from India:

  11. Player of the match

    India opener Mithali Raj, who left the field with a knee injury: "I'm sure it'll get better and I'll be prepared for the next game. The wicket was quite challenging today, playing slower bowlers on a slow wicket was difficult but that partnership with Smriti Mandhana was quite crucial for the team and hopefully we'll get a better wicket for the next game.

    "You try to innovate your game to suit the format, you know opening that you only have to clear the infield at the beginning to score a boundary."

  12. Post update

    So to confirm, India and Australia will qualify for the semi-finals from this group - and meet head-to-head on Saturday to see who finishes top of the group.

    New Zealand, Pakistan and Ireland are eliminated.

    They talk a lot about "brand" in cricket - Ireland don't seem to have a brand as to how they go about playing this format.

  14. Ire 93-8

    The bespectacled Celeste Raack in at number 10, as India close out the victory. Poonam Yadav bowls the last over, Waldron and Raack take a single each, and Lucy O'Reilly is probably relieved not to have to bat.

    INDIA BEAT IRELAND BY 52 RUNS AND QUALIFY FOR SEMI-FINALS - IRELAND (AND NEW ZEALAND) ELIMINATED.

  15. WICKET

    Maritz st Bhatia b Radha 0 (Ire 91-8)

    A "team hat-trick" for India - but not for the bowler as the middle dismissal was a run-out.

    Lara Maritz goes first ball, coming down the track, missing and being stumped. You can throw away any comparisons with namesake Brian Lara...

    You've got to be aware of the person you're running with.

  17. WICKET

    Richardson run out 4 (Ire 91-7)

    Mary Waldron pushes her first ball for a single, there's a mix-up and Richardson goes.

    You're just constantly in the spotlight with everything you do and these girls are not used to it. The England girls, Australia and India are. These Irish girls have talent, there is absolutely no doubt about that.

  19. WICKET

    Garth b Radha 3 (Ire 90-5)

    Garth comes down the track and is bowled. Though there's a brief wait before she leaves the field, are they checking for a no-ball? From a left-arm spinner?

    No - they're checking as the ball only brushed the stumps, but did disturb a bail, so it's out. Perhaps they were checking to see if it was the wicketkeeper's gloves.
