England win by seven wickets and take the tri-series in very convincing style. It wasn't a contest today once New Zealand's opening stand had been broken. Katherine Brunt's two in three balls changed the momentum then England's spinners took 4 for 46 in their combined eight overs. The run chase was a canter once Tammy Beaumont and Danni Wyatt got going. England now move into a one-day series against New Zealand before the KSL begins.

Hypocaust: "Sciver & Knight's 39* partnership at the end was higher than any New Zealand manged for the 4th wicket or lower on the whole tri-series." And there's one of the major differences. The depth in the England side.

Well played to England, another trophy in their cabinet, at the end of an enjoyable tri-series. Thanks for joining me today and see you again soon.
