    On that note, we're going to let you go and make a cup of tea - as our colleagues will be back shortly with live text on day three of the third Sri Lanka v England men's Test from Colombo.

    We hope you've enjoyed following this tournament with us - and if you're bowing out rather than following the Test, good luck with trying to readjust your body-clock back to normal after all these late nights/early mornings.

    Take care - and it's farewell from the WWT20.

    And Australia showed no mercy with the bat, knocking off the runs with nearly five overs to spare:

    Just time to look back with some of the best bits of today.

    England were bowled out for 105 and it never looked like being enough...

    I'll look back on this tournament really fondly as the first standalone Women's World T20 - overall, it's been an unbelievable experience. The best team won, I was hoping for some closer games, but it wasn't to be.

    A final thought from England coach Mark Robinson on TMS: "I'm disappointed for the players because of the effort they've put in - but I'm proud of how hard they've worked."

  6. Post update

    BBC Test Match Special

    England coach Mark Robinson on TMS, asked about the pitches and umpires: "One's in control of the ICC, one's possibly not as much. St Lucia had all the troubles with the weather, and this is one of the lowest scoring venues in men's 50-over cricket. What the women's game does need is good surfaces - listening to people back home, it's not been easy watching at times. But the people back here, as they did in England, have got behind the game.

    "There are human errors - [England women's football manager] Phil Neville had a bit of a rant about referees, but people will make mistakes. It's something people above my pay station will have to look at, and get right. The crusade against people running on the wickets stopped after about three games."

    More from Mark Robinson on TMS: "We came in as slight underdogs. But the disappointing thing is, we got ourselves into positions. I think twice they dropped catches then we got ourselves out next ball. What we haven't been able to do, in this period of time, is get enough form and rhythm into the batters."

    Who have been your stand-out players this tournament?

    England coach Mark Robinson on TMS: "Sophie Ecclestone was outstanding tonight, bowling with a wet ball. That's why I think she's the best finger-spinner in the world. Sophia Dunkley against West Indies, Amy Jones... there's a lot of positives to take.

  9. Post update

    BBC Test Match Special

    England coach Mark Robinson on TMS: "Missed opportunity, a little bit. Australia were jittery. They made a lot of mistakes in the field but we couldn't capitalise. It was quite an error ridden first half of the game from the umpires, to the fielding, to the batting. You're never going to win a game with that amount of runs.

    "I think we've done really well to get to the final. There was an opportunity to win, and that's what you can't deny. I felt a bit for us as a fielding unit."

    And here's that winning moment again:

    And what about the quality of cricket on show? And is there a gap opening up ahead of the lower-ranked teams?

    I was expecting sixes and 160 every game. The bowling's been good, the fielding's been exceptional at times but we've taken a backward step from 2016 in terms of the cricket at times.

    I've seen this coming for a couple of years - England and Australia are the two best-resourced teams, a million miles away from South Africa, New Zealand and West Indies.

    A couple of negatives - what about the pitches, and the umpires?

    There have to be better pitches for global tournaments. In St Lucia at times, 110 was a mammoth score. It wasn't the pitch tonight - England just didn't bat well. The next tournament's in Australia, but here and in the subcontinent we need to produce better pitches.

    You never want umpiring to be a talking point of any tournament. We want the best umpires here, the elite panel umpires if we can - they're trying to give these umpires experience, but they ought to be doing WBBL and KSL at every opportunity to give them experience. We're using DRS for the first time, and they're using umpires who have never used DRS in their domestic competition.

    I didn't ever expect this many people to come out and watch the cricket. The West Indies team must take a lot of credit for this today. When they beat England in St Lucia, there were fans everywhere. To see a stadium nearly full today for two teams that weren't the host nation was incredible.

    England are the second best team in the world, no doubt about it - but I am worried. Australia have real depth. I'm not sure we have another 10 players at home, like Australia do, who could be in an England team and that concerns me.

    The WBBL and the KSL are doing enormous amounts for the game, but the WBBL, which starts on Saturday, will probably unearth another couple of Australian players because they're playing full-time out there. I'm not sure we've quite got to that point at the moment. The Ashes this summer will be a really tough ask for England, especially if they're without Katherine Brunt and Sarah Taylor.

    England have got to have these experiences out in the Big Bash. That's where you learn to play in pressurised situations. The KSL has done wonders for players like Kirstie Gordon. These tournaments are so important for England players.

    England have to form a top six or seven batters, and work out their formula for T20 cricket. Where does Lauren Winfield fit in? Dani Hazell was disappointing, while Laura Marsh was left at home. Will Katherine Brunt come back? Will Sarah Taylor?

    Contracts might be up for renewal - Kirstie Gordon might have done enough for a contract. But we've got to find some seam bowling, some pace that can trouble this Australian team - look at Kate Cross, who's just got a Big Bash deal, Beth Langston or Katie George. They're so used to Shrubsole knocking a couple over early.

    Has it been a disappointing tournament for Tammy Beaumont?

    She's struggled at T20 level - it's not her favoured form of the game and the slow wickets haven't suited her, but the best players in the world adapt to the conditions.

    But there have been so many positives. Amy Jones has been a quality batter for them - and although Sophia Dunkley got a golden duck today, she showed plenty in that game against West Indies and I think we could have a special player there. Kirstie Gordon bowled beautifully throughout.

    Australia have been the best team, hands down - the loss to India might have rocked them a couple of years ago, but they looked a solid and determined group.

    Danni Wyatt started England's innings superbly, she chanced her arm and did a great job but wickets fell around her. Australia had plans for each player - as soon as Nat Sciver came out there, Perry was on. They've learned a lot from the Ashes 12 months ago, and looked very clinical.
