Australia win by 16 runs and it means we'll have an Australia v India final on Wednesday. Excellent work from the home side, but a poor chase from England. They'll think they should have got there, or at least enough to make the final. Spin was tough to face throughout the match, the bowlers on both sides were very good. England didn't have anyone anchor the chase unlike Mooney's half-century for Australia. Tayla Vlaeminck's pace was also key as she removed both openers. Still some questions for Australia with the batting, but they dug deep today. That wraps things up for the group stage of this tri-series, we'll be back with coverage of the final on Wednesday. Don't forget the Bushfire Cricket Bash starts shortly and we'll have a live blog up and running. For now, from Alex and Gnasher, it's goodbye and thanks for joining us.

Schutt to Shrubsole, no run

a yorker outside leg, another dot as it's played back to the bowler...this game is almost done

Schutt to Shrubsole, no run

full at leg stump, can only drive to point

That could be it for England in both senses...certainly the game looks gone now

Schutt to Winfield-Hill, OUT

edged, taken! That zipped to Healy, terrific catch. Full at off stump, Winfield makes room outside leg, swings hard and the thick edge reaches Healy almost before she knows it

Schutt to Winfield-Hill, FOUR runs

well played! A terrific scoop over short fine leg from Winfield, moved across to off stump and connected perfectly

Schutt to Winfield-Hill, no run

a thick inside edge into the pad as she swings across the line

Schutt to Brunt, 1 run

a big heave to leg and a thick inside edge runs to short fine leg

Schutt for her last over
