    Match Hero Shafali Verma, speaking to Sky Sports: "That was so nice. I have not been doing good for the team. I was backing myself and playing to my strengths.

    On her partnership with Eve Jones and playing in the Hundred: "I slowed down because of her fifty. I am enjoying it. In every match I was always wanting to learn something."

    Birmingham Phoenix would have been out of the competition had they lost. They're now fifth and still in the hunt.

    The beauty of having someone like Shafali Verma is she has such fire power. She's had a quiet start to The Hundred but on her day she is a match-winner. She's now found some form and that was an entertaining innings to watch. It was a real statement win from Birmingham Phoenix. I thought they were good with the ball. But to win without losing a wicket is very impressive.

    The Birmingham players are all standing to applaud Shafali Verma and Eve Jones from the field. Verma gets a big hug from her teammate Issy Wong.

    The 17-year-old ends on 76 runs from 42 balls. Jones hit a 35-ball 52. Together they put on 131 - the biggest partnership of the tournament so far.

    It's been a very dominant display of batting from the home side. Being under pressure to get a win has really helped bring the best out of Birmingham Phoenix.

  8. BIRMINGHAM PHOENIX WIN BY 10 WICKETS

    Finished in style by Shafali Verma!

    A thumping win for Birmingham Phoenix.

  9. Phoenix 127-0

    Scores level

    Eve Jones chips one. There was probably two there but I think Shafali Verma wants to finish this with a six...

  10. Phoenix 126-0

    The Phoenix need only two more runs now.

    Eve Jones has really benefited from becoming a professional cricketer. She's been in and around the England setup but has really kicked on.

  12. 50 for Eve Jones

    Let's not forget about Eve Jones. She can play too.

    Four takes her to fifty from 32 balls. You can't complain about that.

  13. Post update

    Shafali Verma's innings, currently worth 71 from 40 balls, has been one of the best of the tournament so far.

  14. Phoenix 120-0

    Need eight runs to win from 30 balls

    It's a good job Birmingham Phoenix are cruising because Shafali Verma has just gone for one of the most badly-judged singles I have ever seen. She should have been run out by half a pitch.

  15. Phoenix 118-0

    Need 10 runs to win from 35 balls

    I wish I had wrists like Shafali Verma. Indiana Jones would be impressed by her whip-age

    If they win this it will give Birmingham Phoenix a bit of belief that they can slip into the eliminators through the back door

    Verma
  17. Phoenix 114-0

    Need 14 runs from 40 balls

    Verma cruelly keeps the strike to raise the prospect of Eve Jones not having the time to get to her fifty.

  18. Phoenix 112-0

    This is an absolute mauling! Jones hits two more fours in a row. She's going to catch Verma at this rate.

  19. Phoenix 104-0

    Need 34 runs from 45 balls

    Remember when I said Welsh Fire had a decent score? Let's never mention that again.

    Jones swings away another four. This game is pretty much done already.

    Welsh Fire need wickets. They could bring a player up in the circle to stop the Phoenix from rotating the strike, although that comes with its own risks. At the moment the Fire are really behind the game and need to do something.
