Australia win by eight wickets in what is another canter. They take a 2-0 lead in the series. Another very efficient display from the home side who gave nine bowlers a chance today. Then Beth Mooney took her chance for a neat hit after not batting the other day in Sydney. There's one more game left in this series in Canberra before the teams head to South Africa for the World Cup

Player of the match is Beth Mooney. "Meg and I were scratching around a bit, but getting used to the night game...always nice to play under lights with the ball skidding on. Thought they bowled really well at the start, but once we got going it wasn't too bad. Fatima Sana has bowled really well and asked a lot of questions, I can't quite pick it out of her hand."

Bismah Maroof "There's a fear of failure, we need to back ourselves. We didn't execute, we have no excuses for that."

Meg Lanning "Thought the bowlers did a great job, bit of mixing and matching, didn't have much of a plan to be honest. It's tricky to manage sometimes, but was sort of conditions-based today. We need to have different players who can have different roles...nice to be able to call on different people."

That wraps things up for today. We'll be back for the final match of the series but from Andrew McGlashan it's goodbye and thanks for joining us.
