105/10 (41.3)
107/1 (19.2)
ENG-W won by 9 wickets
Player of the match: Danielle Wyatt
 
Losing the first three and winning the next three take a lot of belief and determination within the camp, so credit should be given to Heather Knight & co for bouncing back superbly. They hardly broke a sweat today and a win against Bangladesh on Sunday would book their place in the final four.

It's going to be a Super Sunday for the cricket fans as the next two spots for the final four will be decided on that day. It's an early finish here and if you are hungry for more cricketing action, you can switch to the Pak vs Aus Test match in Lahore and follow the updates on our Sportskeeda page.

That's it from here, hope you enjoyed the coverage. Until next time, this is Pragadeesh signing off on behalf of my fellow commentator Pratyush. See yaa 
Heather Knight: Complete performance and really pleased with the win. Katherine had a tough tournament so far but it's good to see her coming out on top. She has put a bit of work in her action to make sure everything is right. It's only a matter of time a player like her rose to the occasion and come back to form. Diana bowled outstandingly and it was really hard to play her at the start. We have a big game against Bangladesh on Sunday and hopefully we get the job done, and also our run rate will be enough to get us through to the next round
Bismah Maroof: I think two run-outs at the top made the difference. If we could've batted more and played 50 overs it would've been good. I think our bowers are our strength, we can back our bowlers to take wickets against any team. That's why we bowled first. I think our batting approach has to be changed. We have hitters who can make a difference but it's about taking the right decisions at the right time. Diana was brilliant and was a standout in these conditions. 
Match Summary

England Women - 107/1 in 19.2 overs (Danielle Wyatt 76 off 68, Katherine Brunt 3/18) defeat Pakistan Women - 105 in 49.3 overs (Sidra Ameen 32 off 78, Diana Baig 1/14) by 9 wickets.

It was a commanding performance from England as they steamrolled Bangladesh and get their third win in this World Cup. The damage was done by Katherine Brunt and Sophie Ecclestone in the bowling department, and the duo made things easy for the batsmen to chase this paltry score.

With some high-quality swing bowling, Diana Baig plagued the England openers at the start and removed Tammy Beaumont cheaply in the fifth over. Danielle Wyatt was dropped by Nida Dar early on and Pakistan instantly paid the price. She took on the bowlers and scored some beautiful boundaries and brought up her first World Cup half-century. Since there weren't enough runs on the board, it's difficult for the Pakistan bowlers to apply any pressure in the middle  Wyatt's batting masterclass was on full display and it helped England to seal the deal comfortably
Danni Wyatt (Player of the match): Yes, about time (on getting her first half-century in a World Cup). I am very happy today and it's great to get an early finish as well. Really pleased with how it went today. Credit to the bowlers. Shoutout to Katherine Brunt, who was bowled her heart out. Pleased for Brunty. Hopefully, we get another win against Bangladesh. We trained well in these conditions. We saw the wicket was a green one, much like back home. So, it was a good toss to win. The ball did a bit early on, and we made the most of it. (On her knock) It was quite a sensible innings. We wanted to capitalize on any width, go hard and go big. I just wanted to get over the line today and get some runs under the belt. 
Danielle Wyatt finishes things off in style and England keep their semi-finals hopes alive. Wyatt stepped in and played a brilliant innings in the pitch that the whole Pakistan batting struggled to get going.

19.2 Fatima Sana to Danielle Wyatt, FOUR! GAME, SET, MATCH! It was back of a length and down the leg side, Wyatt helps it on its way to find the fine leg ropes and seal the deal for her side. After a terrible start to their tournament, the defending champions are right back on track with three wins in a row. A near-perfect performance from the champions as they move into the top-four. Pakistan are officially knocked out of the tournament. England Women win by 9 wickets with more than 30 overs remaining. 
19.1 Fatima Sana to Danielle Wyatt, full and straight on this occasion, Wyatt presents the full face to knock it back to the bowler, no run
19.1 Fatima Sana to Danielle Wyatt, wide. Sprayed the first ball of her new spell down the leg side. Will need to reload.
Fatima Sana (2-0-16-0) replaces Nida Dar
