Colombo: Oct 7, 2012

 

Australia Women posted a daunting target of 143 against England to win in the ICC World T20 final at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

 

Jess Cameron top scored with 45 to provide Australia a good platform  for a big total, after England skipper Charlotte Edwards won the toss and elected to field.

 

Cameron struck a fluent 35-ball 45, which included a six and five hits to the fence.

 

But before Cameron’s knock, Australia openers Meg Lanning and Alyssa Healy provided their side a sturdy start, adding 51 runs for the first wicket in 6.5 overs.

 

England bowler Holly Colvin provided her side the first breakthrough when she dismissed Lanning for 25, which came from 24 balls and four boundaries.

 

Healy soon fell to Danielle Hazel, after scoring 26 from 25 balls, hitting three boundaries.

 

Cameron and Lisa Sthalekar then teamed up to take Australia forward, adding 51 runs for the third wicket which pushed them past 100.

 

Sthalekar remained unbeaten on 23, accompanied by Jodie Fields at 0.

 

For England, Colvin was the most impressive bowler with the figures of two for 21.

 

Brief Scores: Australia Women 142 for 4 in 20 overs (Jess Cameron 45, Alyssa Healy 26, Meg Lanning 25, Lisa Sthalekar 23*; Holly Colvin 2 for 21) vs England Women
