    That's it for us today, though. Thanks for your company.

    Australia edged past Sri Lanka before India impressed against Bangladesh.

    It's shaping up to be a very good tournament.

    See you next time.

  2. Post update

    Tomorrow is the tournament's rest day, before England look to get back on track when they play Thailand in Canberra on Wednesday. The 04:00 start is the first of a double header. West Indies v Pakistan follows.

  3. Post update

    India are top of Group A. They will almost certainly be through to the semi-finals if they beat New Zealand in Melbourne on Friday.

    It's interesting - I think a lot of people thought India would absolutely annihilate Bangladesh and it's not been the case. I don't think any team will annihilate anyone.

  5. India win by 18 runs

    Ban 124-8

    That will do. India are played two, won two. There wasn't ever a time in this match when they looked like losing.

  6. Ban 122-8

    That's all she wrote. The result no longer in any doubt.

  7. WICKET

    Ahmed b Pandey 13 (Ban 121-8)

    Bowled her! Dead-eye yorker from Shikha Pandey.

    Target 143

    Shikha Pandey to bowl it....

  9. Ban 121-7

    Target 143

    22 needed from the final over. Imagine if they pull it off....

  10. Ban 118-7

    Target 143

    Rumana Ahmed with back-to-back boundaries. Where has she been?

  11. Ban 110-7

    Poonam 4-0-18-3

    Only two runs and the wicket from the over, Poonam adds three wickets to the four she took against Australia. What a superstar she is.

    Flippin' heck, that's so slow!

  13. WICKET

    Jahanara st Bhatia b Poonam 10 (Ban 108-7)

    Poonam Yadav is at it again! It's just 34mph and Jahanara Alam is running, swiping and missing. Taniya Bhatia does the rest. They are quite the double act.

  14. Ban 108-6

    Target 143

    Only five from the over. 35 from three looks unlikely.

    They have done really well to get to 106 in the 17th over but I think if Bangladesh had batted first, they might have put India under a bit of pressure.

  16. WICKET

    N Sultana c Reddy b Gayakwad 35 (Ban 106-6)

    The killer blow? Nigar Sultana kept Bangladesh in this game, but now she has swept to square leg, where Reddy takes a smart diving catch. That might be the ball game.

  17. Ban 103-5

    Target 143

    Jahanara Alam arrives, probably to give it the long handle. She starts with a pull for four, then a sweep for a couple. Despite the wicket, there's still nine taken from the over. One big one and Bangladesh will feel they are right in this.

    Stranger things have happened but I don't think Bangladesh are going to win this one. I think India have got it in the bag.

  19. WICKET

    F Khatun c Verma b Poonam 17 (Ban 94-5)

    India's two stars combine. Fahima Khatun sweeps Poonam Yadav straight to square leg, where Shafali Verma takes the catch. That should halt the Bangladesh momentum.

  20. Ban 94-4

    Four more singles from the final four deliveries. Bangladesh have taken 20 off the past two.
