The Australians are absolutely ecstatic, one can easily see how much the win means to them. A contrast to the New Zealand dug-out, where emotions are very low. Devine, who top-scores with 38 from 35, got New Zealand so close, but one can't help but think they should have launched a charge sooner, despite the loss of wickets. There were a lot of dot balls in New Zealand's innings too, as their batsmen struggled against a thoroughly professional effort from Australia in the field. They played like the champions that they now are. Ellyse Perry is Player of the Match for her three wickets.

So, after playing in both finals, Australia do finally walk away with a trophy today. The men's side had stayed to support the women, they cheered every run and every wicket. Peter English has a bulletin in, so do have a look at that as it's a top effort. That's all from us tonight folks, goodbye from me, Liam Brickhill, and from my colleagues Andrew Miller and Sahil Dutta. Until next time.

Perry to Devine, 1 run, they've done it! Australia win! Devine drove the ball back at the bowler really hard, she had to get something on it as it was hit dead straight, and she did! Perry got a boot on it, Sthalekar ran in to field the re-bound, and Australia win!

Very tense out there now, 5 from 1

Perry to Devine, 2 runs, slashed away really hard behind point, brilliant fielding on the boundary keeps them down to two again - Nitschke it was!

A boundary now will make things very interesting...

Perry to Devine, 2 runs, she comes down the track and hammers one down to long off, they've got to come back for two, they do!

Perry to Devine, 2 runs, driven out over extra cover again, this one didn't quite have the timing, but they sprint really hard to pick up two

11 from 4...

Perry to Devine, 2 runs, driven superbly! Lofted with great timing over the covers, the fielder sprinted round to cut it off and after several replays that's given as two runs. Very close to the boundary though

Perry to Perry, 1 run, punched back to the bowler, who can't quite stop it, Devine charges down to get back on strike, colliding with the bowler but making it in safely in the end. 13 off 5 needed now!
