Australia win by 16 runs and it means we'll have an Australia v India final on Wednesday. Excellent work from the home side, but a poor chase from England. They'll think they should have got there, or at least enough to make the final. Spin was tough to face throughout the match, the bowlers on both sides were very good. England didn't have anyone anchor the chase unlike Mooney's half-century for Australia. Tayla Vlaeminck's pace was also key as she removed both openers. Still some questions for Australia with the batting, but they dug deep today. That wraps things up for the group stage of this tri-series, we'll be back with coverage of the final on Wednesday. Don't forget the Bushfire Cricket Bash starts shortly and we'll have a live blog up and running. For now, from Alex and Gnasher, it's goodbye and thanks for joining us.
