England thrashed Pakistan by nine wickets in heir must-win ICC Women's Cricket World Cup match in Christchurch on Thursday.

Team England chased down the modest target of 106 runs in only 19.2 overs with a major contribution from Dann Wyyat, who smashed first half-century of the world cup. 

After winning the toss and electing to bowl first at Hagley Oval, Brunt played a major role in restricting Pakistan early on.

Katherine Brunt and Sophie Ecclestone helped England restrict Pakistan to 105 in their must-win clash.

Both English bowlers took three wickets each, with the pacer removed the opening line-up while the spinner dismantled the lower-order.

Sidra Ameen and Sidra Nawaz were the only two batters for Pakistan who put up scores of 20+ as the rest of the batting order had no answer to the England bowlers, ICC said in a press release.

England XI: Tammy Beaumont, Danni Wyatt, Heather Knight (c), Nat Sciver, Amy Jones, Sophia Dunkley, Emma Lamb, Katherine Brunt, Sophie Ecclestone, Kate Cross, Anya Shrubsole
