20th over: England 172-7 (Ecclestone 9, Hazell 7) Dani Hazell! A wonderful little two-ball cameo to finish! She hits to long-off and with just enough spin to deny Tahuhu who misfields on the rope. She then adds three more out to cover with some desperate running with Ecclestone. 19 from the final over. Considering the stumble they had losing three wickets about three-quarters of the way through their innings, it is a fantastic effort from the hosts. Plenty to bowl at. Back with the NZ reply at 7:10pm.
Caught at cover with a couple of balls to go but Shrubsole more than did her job. Her feet were fantastic to begin this final over dancing at Kasperek twice in a row for four then six! Through cover then over long-off! That pushed the hosts beyond the 160 they made earlier in the day.
