Colombo: Oct 6, 2012

 

In a mouth-watering rematch, reigning champions Australia will face 2009 winners England in the final of the women’s World Twenty20 on Sunday.

 

The two teams met in the final group match of the women’s event in Galle, with England beating Australia by seven wickets.

 

England have been undefeated throughout the tournament, posting decisive wins in their group matches and in the semi-final, played against two-time runners-up New Zealand. England beat the White Ferns by seven wickets to reach their World T20 final in three years.

 

Australia advanced to the final after beating a spirited West Indies side by 28-runs in the second semi-final. Australia have lost only one match in the tournament, having beaten India and Pakistan in the group stage in Galle.

 

In the first semi-final Thursday, England’s spin bowlers restricted the White Ferns to 93 for eight off 20 overs on a slow wicket. Danielle Wyatt and Holly Colvin finished with two wickets each. Colvin is the leading wicket-taker for England, and is the third-highest wicket-taker of the tournament, with seven.

 

In addition, three out of the top five run-getters in the tournament are from England, with Edwards the leading run-scorer, Sarah Taylor third and all-rounder Laura Marsh fifth.

 

In Friday’s second semi-final, it was again the bowlers who sealed victory. Australia’s Julie Hunter took the only five-for in the tournament so far. Hunter is currently the leading wicket-taker of the tournament, with nine scalps. (IANS)
