That's it from here at Wellington! Hope y'all have as good a day as the English women. 
Heather Knight, the English skip believes it was a nice T20 surface. She says Freya Davies was the difference with the ball. Tammy Beaumont was a treat to watch from the other end. 
Sophie Devine the NZ skipper rues the fact that the Satterthwaite-Kerr partnership wasn't able to kick on to rack up a fighting total. She reckons the wicket actually played well and the English top-order was just too good, especially with that modest total to chase. They look forward to the Sunday crowds. 
Freya Davies is the Player of the Match. She says the plans were very simple - keep the stumps in play and let the batters make the mistakes. Was also good to keep the feet up and watch Beaumont and Co blaze away.
England win by 6 wickets and the series 2-0. The damage was done in the first innings itself as 123 was never going to be a competitive total against an in-form English batting column. Freya Davies' spell of 4-23 set it up for Tammy Beaumont, who pressed on with her dream form sending the Ferns bowling to all corners, all from the meat. Mair did bowl with some pace and swing but it needed a collective effort to make this a game.

17.1 Hayley Jensen to Heather Knight, OUT! CAUGHT! Knight in a hurry to wrap things up, mistimes the good length ball from Jensen and ends up giving a sitter to the fielder at mid on.
