2.5 absolute dolly to mid-off and McLean roars in delight. Mooney didn't complete the stroke, looked like she wanted to go downtown but something stopped her as she reached out to drive, bat-face turned in her hand as a result and a simple catch was gobbled up nicely. 20/1
    11.6 top-edges this sweep straight to short fine leg. Got too far across - intention right - but the execution a little off because the length was pulled back a bit by Fletcher. Good bowling. She's come back well after being picked for two boundaries early in the over. 71/2
    16.4 backs away to force this behind point, beaten by the skid, cramped for room and bowled. Lanning was setting herself up for the final flourish but can't bat through today. Good hand nonetheless. 109/4
    14.5 lofted through the line but she's only chipped this straight to mid-off. Easiest of catches. Nowhere near the pitch, Mathews shortened her length to ensure Gardner doesn't get to the pitch. 95/3
    17.1 what a catch! Britney Cooper with a superhuman effort at deep midwicket. Villani rocks back and pulls in front of square. Cooper, for a second, could've well been in doubt, whether to dive forward or try and stop the boundary. Takes the aggressive route and perhaps surprises herself by covering the ground she did. Despite that, she had to put in the dive, which she did, to complete this low catch to a rocket hit. 113/5

    1.5 this is magnificent work from Alyssa Healy. Can you keep her out of the game, ever? What alertness. Matthews is squared up by the turn, and she somehow manages to get some bat on this. But she's a couple of steps down the pitch and the ball bounces twice to Healy, who picks up the ball and whips the bails off in a hurry even as Matthews is completely off balance in trying to get back inside the crease. Will go down as a run out. 15/1
    2.4 the leg stump has been flattened! West Indies in early trouble and Dottin's miserable night is over. This is an inducker that cramps her for room from length outside off. Dottin was looking to cut but was cramped for room and she ended up chopping on. Stunned silence in the crowd, Perry takes off on a celebratory run 15/2
    10.1 is that the end for West Indies? Taylor just didn't look set, and has been consumed by pressure. Looks to step out to hit over the bowler's head but is deceived in flight and she ends up slicing this to mid-off. 44/5
    4.6 this has been pulled straight to square leg, Perry has two in two and West Indies are in deep trouble. 25/3
    6.2 chips this straight to cover, West Indies are falling apart. This is a length ball that got stuck into the pitch, not there to hit through the line and she just scooped it straight up. Lanning was never going to drop that. 27/4
    11.1 the procession continues as this has been slogged across the line to deep midwicket. Dragged it from outside off. 45/6
    12.5 miscues this slog so high that Alyssa Healy has enough time to sip a cup of tea before settling underneath that. Deceived by the slower delivery, looked to fetch it from way outside off. West Indies in danger of being bowled out. 53/7
    14.5 oh, dear. I don't quite think Schutt expected gifts like those. This slower delivery holds onto the surface, Henry looks to play a cross-batted stroke but this didn't quite skid on and she ended up chipping it straight to cover. 60/8
    15.1 beaten by the googly and they keep on falling. Steps out and looks to swing blindly over the bowler's head. Missed it completely. What a heartbreak 60/9
    not out
    17.3 that's the end of that! Fitting that Healy, who has done so much for them all tournament, nails the final blow for West Indies. Simplest of stumpings and Australia have made amends for their loss in the 2016 final. 71/10
