Scorecard summary
India Women103/9(20 overs)
Australia Women104/6(18.5 overs)

Australia win by four wickets with seven balls to spare. Certainly not their best batting display, but Ellyse Perry had an outstanding all-round day with 49 and four wickets. India did very well to take it deep in the chase, but their batting struggled against the pace of Vlaeminck while Perry took three in an over. There was also another injury worry for India when Reddy left the field with a hand injury. That's the end of the Canberra leg of this tournament which now moves to Melbourne. Thanks for joining us today, we'll be back later in the week when this tournament resumes. For now, from Gnasher and Alex, it's goodbye
