NZ-W 111/2 (11.5 ov, Amelia Kerr 21*, Sophie Devine 51*, Issy Wong 0/19)


New Zealand win by eight wickets and take the Commonwealth Games bronze medal. An utter thumping for England. They just did not seem switched on today. New Zealand on top from start to finish. Their spinners were superb and then captain Sophie Devine ensured the run chase caused no concerns. A massive 49 balls to spare. A lot of New Zealand players head towards Katherine Brunt who, I think, has a few tears in her eyes. How much longer will she carry on? But this is a significant moment for New Zealand. There were some big selection calls made recently, some viewed as quite controversial, but this is a good start for new coach Ben Sawyer. They are largely a young team and this will build their confidence. England, too, are bringing in fresh faces and at times they looked very good in this tournament but they faded in the knockout matches. They missed Heather Knight. So, we know the three teams who will be on the podium, but who will be taking gold in a few hours when Australia take on India? That has the makings of a fantastic contest and we’ll be back to bring you all the action. Thanks for joining us for this one, congratulations to New Zealand, and from Andrew McGlashan it’s goodbye.
