Mirpur: Apr 6, 2014

The Australia Women have restricted the England Women to 105 for eight in the final of the ICC Women’s World T20 2014 at the Sher-E-Bangla National Stadium. Both England and Australia are favourites for this tournament and have rightfully made it through to the final. However, it was Australia who controlled the first half of the game.

Australia women won the toss and chose to bowl first in the crunch game, with a handful of spectators in the backdrop. Sarah Taylor and Charlotte Edwards started off cautiously and the Australian bowling kept them in check. Edwards was the first to be dismissed when Sarah Coyte had her caught at mid-on. It was a shot played in an attempt to increase the scoring rate.

England had briefly increased the scoring rate and had moved to 55 in the 10th over, but then Australia hit back and kept denting England at regular intervals. Heather Knight was the only one who attacked and kept England in the hunt. She scored 29 off 24 balls.

But, it was Coyte’s day to steal the show and she finished with figures of three for 15. Australia were in complete control throughout and bowled in the right channels. It was a performance that saw them take complete control. England tried to play the big shots, but were unable to get them away. Coyte took three wickets for 16 runs and Ellyse Perry took two for 13.

A target of 106 shouldn’t be too difficult for Australia and they seem set to lift their third consecutive ICC World T20.

Brief scores:

England Women 105 for 8 in 20 overs (Heather Knight 29; Sarah Coyte 3 for 16, Ellyse Perry 2 for 13) vs Australia Women.
