The dead-rubber panned out on the expected lines as England bulldozed Pakistan in the 19th match of the Women's T20 World Cup by 114 runs.

England record first 200-plus total in Women's T20 World Cup history 

After opting to bat first, England were in the mood to play slam-bang cricket as despite losing Sophia Dunkley and Alice Capsey early, Danielle Wyatt batted aggressively.

Involved in a 74-run partnership with Nat Sciver-Brunt, Wyatt meant business as her destructive 33-ball 59 showed Pakistan what they were in for.

After Wyatt's dismissal Nat and Amy Jones dashed Pakistan to pieces with their 100-run partnership that was broken on the last ball of the innings. The duo helped England set history as the side brought up the first 200-plus in the history of the Women's T20 World Cup, ending at 213/5.

Nat stayed unbeaten, top-scoring for England with her 81 runs that came off just 40 deliveries.

Pakistan display no fight

Pakistan, who were without their regular skipper Bismah Maroof, not only missed her presence while captaincy but also in the batting front.

Although the result had become predictable even before the run-chase started, Pakistan looked to not even try as Katherine Sciver-Brunt and Charlotte Dean dictated terms all along the innings.

Tuba Hassan, who was also Pakistan's most economical bowler of the day, had a highest individual score of 28 for the team.

Eventually, the women in green finished at 99/9 as England won by 114 runs, the biggest-ever in a Women's T20 World Cup.
