On Tuesday, England demolished Pakistan in their final group stage encounter to top Group 2 points table in ongoing ICC Women's T20 World Cup. 

Natalie Sciver-Brunt slammed an unbeaten 81 off 40, which saw England post a record mammoth total of 213 for 5. 

An all-round bowling performance witnessed England beat Pakistan by 114 runs; the biggest margin in tournament history.

Sciver-Brunt, who brought up a fifty in just 29 balls, said that England wanted to show everyone what they are as a team and that this match presented the perfect chance.

As per ESPNcricinfo, the leading run-getter in the tournament, Sciver-Brunt stated that England are working towards being the number one side, and need to beat the best in the world.

Here's what Sciver-Brunt said

"To be the best in the world, you have to beat the current best in the world and Australia have been very consistently at the top of their game for a really long time. As a group, we are working towards wanting to be number one in the world. But the way we're doing it is the most important thing. And the way that everyone is really brought in and believes in the way that we're playing will win us games will win us tournaments, and I think that's the most important thing."

The Heather Knight-led side will meet South Africa in the second semi-final on Friday, after the latter qualified for the final four by defeating Bangladesh last evening.
