5.30pm So that's the end of the series, and the England women's summer. Heather Knight lifts the trophy and the celebrations can begin. Thanks for joining us. Let's do it all again next year.

The Player of the Series is Heather Knight. Again. "Such a nice feeling, by a long way out best performance of the series. Opening partnership then Tammy's hundred. And the bowlers have been good all series. A quiet series batting first, today was a sign of what we can do. Danni might have carved a little niche for herself. Will be tough to leave her out."

Tammy Beaumont is Player of the Match. "Brilliant to play here at my home of cricket. Our batting has fallen short as a unit, so great to go out with a bang. The NZ plans were really attacking all summer. Sophia Dunkley and Danni were exceptional at the end there.

Sophie Devine: "One of those games you flush down the dunny. We could have gone into this game 4-0 up. Serious competition for places, will hold us in good stead going into the World Cup.

Time for some presentations. The PCA player of the summer is Heather Knight. "Really pleased, not at my best against India, but enjoyed this series. Made good matchwinning contributions. Adapting to situations is my role in the team."

Kate Cross: "The batters set us up today, Tammy was outstanding. I felt good all summer, felt confident with a clear role. Nice to get to 50 wickets. And we wanted a 4-1 series win. Spoke about it last night, 3-2 could have looked close."

Dean to Tahuhu, OUT, And that is the end of that! A pasting to end an otherwise richly competitive series. A big skier, into the deep. Dean ends a fine debut series with her tenth wicket

Knight to Rowe, OUT, Low full-toss and Knight is lording it in this over! An attempted sweep, pinned on the shin. I guess after a leg-side strangle for a duck, you're entitled to a bit of burglary with the ball

HM Rowe lbw b Knight 20 (30m 27b 2x4 0x6) SR: 74.07

Knight to Tahuhu, 1 run,
Knight to Tahuhu, 1 wide,
Knight to Halliday, OUT, Knight's a bit embarrassed by that one! Goldenarm will goldenarm. A rank long-hop, Halliday's eyes lit up, a top-edged pull to midwicket. And the end game begins
