  1. Goodbye

    And that's the end of the group stages of the women's competition. It's been great, hasn't it?!

    We now know our three finalists: Southern Brave are straight through to the final, while Birmingham Phoenix and Oval Invincibles will play in the eliminator on Friday to find out who will be joining them.

    Thanks for joining us and we'll be back shortly for the men's fixture between these two sides.

    Match Hero Danielle Gibson: "We are gutted to not get through to the eliminators but it's great to end with a win. We have played well in this tournament, but not quite well enough.

    "We knew if they batted first it would make it easier. We bowled well but just couldn't get it with the bat. I don't think everything has clicked in other games, but everything did today.

    "I have really enjoyed playing with some brilliant international players, who will give you lots of time and advice. It's been a great tournament and I can't wait for next year."

    Spirit's Danielle Gibson gets the Match Hero award for an impressive all round performance of 34 not out from just 19 balls and taking two wickets for just 10 runs.

    It wasn't to be for London Spirit. They gave it somewhat of a crack in pursuit of making the eliminators but will miss out on inferior run rate. But it's a dominant performance nonetheless.

    So, after all that, London Spirit finish in fourth place - just missing out on a place in the eliminator.

    Welsh Fire, meanwhile, finish at the bottom. A difficult campaign for them.


    And Knight does it in style! They wrap up the win in 58 balls. There was some great hitting at the end from Gibson and Knight, which just came a little too late for them to make the eliminator. But they'll be happy to finish their competition with a win.

    Heather Knight and Danielle Gibson are just having some fun and trying to entertain the crowd now.

  8. Spirit 92-3

    Need 4 runs to win

    A very strange ball from Hayley Matthews, who bowls it very short like a bouncer, but Heather Knight slaps it for four.

  9. Spirit 87-3

    Need 9 runs to win

    A few more boundaries from Danielle Gibson takes it to less than 10 needed to win. It's been a great innings from her, she's whacked it, as well as trying to play the innovative shots.

  10. Spirit 77-3

    Need 19 runs to win

    And again! This time going for a reverse ramp type shot, she doesn't get hold of it but it still trickles away for four. Lovely!

    She goes for another big shot next ball but Katie George stops the boundary with a good sliding save.

  11. Spirit 72-3

    Need 24 runs to win

    Danielle Gibson has had a great tournament - and she shows her talents with the bat yet again with a four crashed over the leg side.

    Welsh Fire need to nip a few wickets out to try to end with a bit of high after a disappointing tournament.

  13. Post update

    Spirit needed fireworks early if they were going to make it through to the eliminators. It didn't quite come off, but it looks like they're going to get the win at least.

    Hayley Matthews was too full and straight and Heather Knight loves the sweep shot.

    There was a great moment earlier where Heather Knight said on her big screen intro interview before coming out to bat that her favourite shot was the sweep. Then she came to the crease and her very first ball, played that shot.

  16. Spirit 67-3

    Need 29 runs to win

    Another four from Heather Knight, sweeping Hayley Matthews to the ropes.

  17. BreakingSpirit 63-3

    Need 33 runs to win

    So, London Spirit can no longer make the eliminators. It was never going to be easy.

  18. Spirit 60-3

    Need 36 runs to win

    Although that's a beauty from Heather Knight - four more smashed straight down the ground.

  19. Spirit 56-3

    Need 40 runs to win

    I wonder if Spirit are just focusing on winning this game now.
