"From the time we went out there," a beaming Matthews says, "it was a pretty good wicket. We wanted to put a big score on the board because we knew they were going to come out pretty hard. We talked in previous seasons about not getting over the line when we got pretty close in games, so it's great to close this one out. Thankfully, I got it done in the final over."

Great game defined by three superb innings. While two of them came from Brave, Matthews' assault in the first innings was enough to see off Mandhana and Wyatt's counterattacks. And it was Matthews herself to ended up doing the business with the ball. in a high-pressure final over
