The 37-year-old has hit eight boundaries in her first two innings, with scores of 19 and 27. Here are successive fours that she struck against Pakistan on Tuesday evening.Video contentVideo caption: Shillington hits Dar for back-to-back boundariesShillington hits Dar for back-to-back boundariesPosted at 14:3614:36Live audio commentaryBBC Test Match SpecialPosted at 14:3514:35Weather conditionsGuyana has been our safe haven weather-wise but there has been a St Lucia-esque amount of rain around this mornng, although it is now dry and the covers are off. The clouds look a little threatening, however, and the toss is being delayed while the groundstaff finish the mop-up.Posted at 14:3014:30Post updateOver in Group A West Indies beat South Africa by 31 runs last night to leapfrog England. Now having had that match abandoned without a ball bowled on Saturday, England will hope the rain relents when they take on the South African in St Lucia tomorrow.Video contentVideo caption: World T20: Funky dancing, weird catches & a party in the standsWorld T20: Funky dancing, weird catches & a party in the standsPosted at 14:2814:28India close in on semi-finalsTournament favourites Australia have already secured their place in the semi-finals after three impressive wins and it’s a pretty straightforward scenario for India. Avoid defeat today and they will be the other team from Group B to join the Australians in the last four.Posted at 14:2714:27Ireland hoping to scale the heightsIt’s a tall order, vertiginous, one might say, for the amateurs – and today’s rather greater funded opponents India have easily won their first two matches – but let’s see what transpires as we welcome you to our coverage of the Women’s World T20 Group B match between India and Ireland at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesThe world’s tallest man, Robert Wadlow, in the 1930sImage caption: The world’s tallest man, Robert Wadlow, in the 1930sPosted at 14:2614:26Against all oddsYes after defeats against Australia and Pakistan Ireland have to win today and in their final group match against New Zealand on Saturday to stand any chance of qualifying for the semi-finals. And boost their run-rate rather significantly too.Posted at 14:2514:25WelcomeHello again, will it be third time lucky for Ireland today?Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty Images
