ICC Women's World Twenty20 - Final

Australia Women v England Women

Australia Women won by 4 runs


Colvin to Lanning, OUT, down the track again but no to the pitch here and chips it back to the bowler so England make a vital breakthrough and they needed that badly because Australia had been rampant in that opening stand. Again looking to play straight, Lanning wasn't to the pitch of the ball, didn't adjust and chipped a catch back to the bowler that was well taken above her head

MM Lanning c & b Colvin 25 (24b 4x4 0x6) SR: 104.16

Australia Women 51/1   AJ Healy 21* (18b 3x4)   HL Colvin 0.5-0-4-1


Hazell to Healy, OUT, length ball tried to be swung to leg, misses and is bowled so England pick up another important wicket and both openers are gone. Mis-read the length here, went to pull and it scuttled onto the stumps, ended up looking a little lucky, a shame because it was a fine knock

AJ Healy b Hazell 26 (25b 3x4 0x6) SR: 104.00

Australia Women 68/2   JE Cameron 12* (13b 2x4)   D Hazell 2.1-0-12-1


Colvin to Cameron, OUT, tossed up on leg stump and swung down the ground but finds long on and Cameron is gone, just what England wanted. So Cameron can't go on for the Aussies, still no half-century for them in this tournament, tried to clear the ropes again but picked out the fielder who held the stroke

JE Cameron c Gunn b Colvin 45 (34b 5x4 1x6) SR: 132.35

Australia Women 119/3   LC Sthalekar 13* (15b 1x4)   HL Colvin 2.1-0-11-2


Marsh to Blackwell, 1 run, OUT, swung out from outside off to deep midwicket, they come back for two but it's not even close and Blackwell is run out by half the pitch

AJ Blackwell run out 13 (12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 108.33

Australia Women 142/3   LC Sthalekar 23* (26b 1x4)   LA Marsh 4-0-26-0
