Scorecard

Australia easily won the final game of the Rose Bowl, beating New Zealand by four wickets to complete a comprehensive 5-1 series win.

Set a modest target of 197, Australia achieved their target in the 49th over, with Alexandra Blackwell unbeaten at the end on 22. The chase had been set up by a 63-run second-wicket partnership between Shannon Cuneen (39) and Karen Rolton (31). Mavis Jones, with a fluent 54 off 55 balls, then made sure that nothing further went wrong.

New Zealand's innings began with a doughty innings of 41, off 81 balls, by Maria Fahey, who held one end up but could never quite get the momentum going. Haidee Tiffen made 60 off 83 balls to propel them to 196, but in the end, it wasn't enough.

Rolton was named player of the series, finishing with a total of 394 runs - including one century and three fifties.
