Australia win by 21 runs and take the series 3-0 The winning streak extends to 24. Didn't look like we'd get a game today, but the sky cleared in time. New Zealand had their moments but the first part of their chase was poor, albeit on a tricky pitch against some very good bowling. Wasn't Australia best display with the bat but they gave themselves enough. So it's job done for the visitors in this series, but remember the T20s were shared.

Alyssa Healy has been named Player of the Match and Megan Schutt Player of the Series

That also completes the New Zealand international season. It's been a fantastic effort to get six touring sides over in the current climate. Been a lot of fun to watch and cover as well. I'll wrap things up for tonight. Thanks for joining us. See you soon.
