Commentary

Presentation:

Edwards: "We've got to come back strongly. It was an important toss and we exploited the conditions well and the reasons we lost this game was poor shot selection and a couple of decisions went against us. We have depth in our order. Holly played really well. Hopefully we can win the last two."

Fields: "We hung in there and never gave up. Little Holly (Ferling) is not that little, great to see her bowling well. We really enjoyed playing in Cuttack. Just goes to show you can win if you bowl the ball in the right areas."

Sthalekar is the Player of the Match: "I am glad my experience comes handy. I was fortunate to have a good partnership with Sarah. I thought it was a decent batting wicket. I found the pitch quite nice."

So Australia play Sri Lanka next. Thanks for your company today. We'll see you again soon. Cheers!

End of match: Phew what a thriller! After being reduced to 39 for 6, the target of 147 looked distant. Marsh and Greenway believed that England could still get through. Australia were starting to get a bit worried and it looked all but over at 114 for 9. England pushed and prodded and nearly got there but luck was with Australia.

England will feel aggrieved by a couple of lbw decisions that looked dodgy. In both, Hawkeye showed the ball missing leg. It hurt that one of those victims was the captain Charlotte Edwards. Nevertheless, the other batsmen paid the price by playing loose shots. That's something England will need to address.

Stay with us for the presentation. Sthalekar should be the favourite for the Player of the Match.
