Australia have collapsed to concede a 2-0 lead at Chelmsford. They were sitting pretty at 87 for 1, and even at 107 for 2, with Sthalekar and Rolton in the middle, the run chase was well on. However, Laura Marsh bowled superbly to take three wickets, and despite some resistance towards the end, too much damage had been inflicted on Australia for them to fight back.

They aren't showing the presentation ceremony so we can only guess that Sarah Taylor's the Player of the Match. Thanks for tuning in. On behalf of everyone at Cricinfo, this is Sid Talya signing off. Adios!

Shaw to Ebsary, OUT
it's all over! Shaw delivers the final blow. Slower one bowled on a length on the off, Ebsary, who had played a valiant knock, had a massive swing at it but made no contact, the ball did the rest, crashing into middle and off
