Sri Lanka Women 244-9 (Jayangani 62) beat
England Women 238-8 by one wicket
ICC Women's World Cup, Mumbai
Scorecard

World Cup upsets don't come much bigger than this. Tournament outsiders Sri Lanka should have been no match for reigning champions England but won a thriller in Mumbai by one wicket, wicket-keeper Dilani Manodara hitting the last ball for six.

England posted a competitive, but reachable 238 for eight after Jenny Gunn's 52 had helped them recover from a shaky start but Sri Lanka, through Chamari Atapttu's 62, quickly got in terms before their lower order applied the finishing touches to their first ever win over England.

Australia Women 175 (Haynes 39) beat
Pakistan Women 84 by 91 runs

Scorecard

Australia were made to work hard for their 91-run win over Pakistan, prevailing despite only managing to hit 175 in their innings.

Rachael Haynes top scored with 39 and Sarah Coyte made a highly valuable unbeaten 35 before taking three for 20 to spare Australia's blushes.

Sadia Yousuf had earlier taken three for 30 and Bismah Maroof easily top scored for Pakistan with 43.

New Zealand Women 320-5 (Devine 147) beat
South Africa Women 170 by 150 runs
