10 caught at mid-off! Lanning tried to repeat her shot but this time she did not clear the infield, she came down the pitch and hit it straight to Kyshona Knight 52/1
    25 caught at midwicket! Haynes tried to pull the ball over the infield but the pace was so slow that she only managed to lob it over midwicket. The fielder ran back and took the catch as the ball dropped over her head. Kyshona judged that very well. 116/2
    35.5 that is a lucky, lucky wicket for West Indies! The ball was fairly rubbish, a thigh high full toss. Cameron was on the front foot and she smashed it hard, but her placement was off because she hit it straight to Kyshona Knight on the deep midwicket boundary. Knight barely had to move. 181/4
    27.5 caught behind! Blackwell began to come forward to a good length ball outside off and then stopped and opened the face to try and steer towards third man, she got a faint edge through to Aguilleira, who took a straightforward catch. Smartt's second spell has begun well for West Indies. 126/3
    37.1 caught at square leg! Sthalekar's swept the ball in the air and Campbelle had to move a few metres to her right to catch it at waist height 187/5
    39.2 caught at mid-on! Coyte tried to hit down the ground but the slowness of the ball gave her nothing to work with. She lobbed it straight to Daley. West Indies have recovered a lot of lost ground during the batting Powerplay. 190/6
    not out
    43.2 caught at mid-on! Very similar to the Coyte dismissal. Osborne came forward and tried to clear mid-on, she wasn't to the pitch of the ball and she had no pace to use. She hit it straight to Quintyne 209/7
    not out

    10 lbw! Ellyse Perry ends her first over in smiles after starting it nervously. But did that pitch outside leg stump? The ball angled across and then shaped back a touch into Knight, who tried to close the face of the bat and missed. The ball struck her pretty adjacent 32/1
    13.3 that's plumb lbw! Perry's swiftly dashing West Indies' hopes tonight. That's on a good length and dead straight. McLean moved across her crease and tried to turn through square leg. It was much too full for that shot. That's as plumb as you can get. 41/3
    11.4 caught and bowled! Perry on fire. No doubt about this catch. Taylor simply prodded forward at a good length ball and lobbed it back to the bowler. Massive wicket for Australia. Taylor is one of West Indies' best batsmen. 38/2
    not out
    26.1 bowled first ball! Aguilleira is beaten through the gate as she tries to come forward and turn the ball through square leg. She was beaten by the flight, dip and turn. Terrific offspin bowling 88/4
    30.4 bowled her! Dottin charged down the track and slogged, she was beaten in the flight and missed, Sthalekar hit leg stump. She takes off on a celebratory run. That's probably the World Cup for Australia 109/5
    31.1 caught at point! It was short of a length outside off, Campbelle cut firmly, the ball flew quickly to gully where Lanning took a sharp catch. Schutt's now the leading wicket-taker in the tournament 109/6
    35.4 Caught and bowled! Daley tries to pull and gets a edge that lobs back slowly to Schutt, who takes a simple catch 114/8
    34.1 caught at short leg! Quintyne pushed forward with bat close to pad and the offbreak popped up off the inside edge, Blackwell was waiting 114/7
    42.2 caught at deep midwicket! Schutt runs in to catch the ball on the move after Mohammed advanced and slogged across the line. Only one more to take now. 141/9
    43.1 and it's an epic catch to end the World Cup! Lisa Sthalekar moves nimbly to her right at short midwicket and dives full length to take the catch inches from the ground. Smartt had chipped it tamely in the air. 145/10

Match Notes

  • The rise of the West Indies women's team

    Their World T20 title was thanks largely to their players gaining experience playing around the world, following the WICB's takeover of the women's game

  • Exciting end to eventful journey for Ferling

    In 12 months, 17-year-old quick Holly Ferling has gone from playing club cricket with her younger brother to impressing on the biggest stage in the women's game

  • Lisa Sthalekar retires from international cricket

    Lisa Sthalekar, the Australia women's allrounder who was part of Sunday's World Cup-winning team, has announced her retirement from international cricket

  • Australia's limping hero

    Ellyse Perry aborted her first two attempts at bowling because of an injured ankle, but she fought through to deliver a match-winning spell

  • Attack key to Fields' glory

    Most captains would have rested their two star bowlers after making the initial breakthroughs in a World Cup final. But Jodie Fields isn't like most captains
