Full commentary

Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Be back for more from the Women's World T20. Will we finally have play in St Lucia tomorrow? Looks grim, but let's remain optimistic. Cheers

Alyssa Healy is the Player of the Match. "I love T20 cricket, you don't have to switch off, have to just keep rolling. I'm just enjoying playing with a lot of freedom. Our bowlers are doing an unbelievable job, there are quality players sitting in the sidelines, so it shows the depth of the squad, which is pleasing for us."

Chances are it may have taken Australia longer to load their kits from the baggage carousel to the team bus than it took to see off Ireland's small target in Providence. The enforcer was Alyssa Healy, who walloped a 21-ball half-century, the fastest in the tournament's history, to raze down 94 in just 9.1 overs.

Ireland's best chance of competing was to bat first and put runs up against the four-time champions. Laura Delany called correctly and they finished the Powerplay 27 without loss. Then the big-match nerves failed Ireland as they lost 5 for 16, resulting in a breakdown they didn't recover from.

Ireland didn't run well, and weren't helped by poor umpiring calls either - like the controversial call by Langton Rusere to dock them five runs because Delany seemingly ran onto the 'danger zone.' All this coupled with some tight, relentless Australian lines resulted in no leeway.
