The England lasses recovered to 146 in 19.3 overs after losing their top four batters cheaply through fighting knocks by skipper Josie Groves who struck a cameo 52 off 41 balls laced with 4 boundaries and 2 sixes and Jodi Grewcock, 31 off 33 balls with 3 boundaries and a six in posting also 90 runs off 54 balls for the fifth wicket.

Australia could muster only 111 for 5 in 20 overs in the face of tight bowling by Sophia Smale 3 for 19 and Alexa Stonehousa 2 for 17.  Eleanor Larosa top scored for Australia with an unbeaten 41 and Hasrat Gill 40 not out, but they fell short of the required run rate to overhaul England.
