Australia produced a match-winning bowling effort to stun defending champions England with a thrilling two-run victory in their first Super Six match of the ICC Women’s World Cup at the Brabourne Stadium on Friday. Chasing Australia’s 147, the English batters lost the plot as half of their side was back in the hut in just over 10 overs with a mere 39 runs on the board.

Despite Australia posting their lowest total against England in a World Cup game, they defended it successfully, thanks to the Aussie pace trio of Megan Schutt, Julie Hunter and Holly Ferling, who snapped up two wickets each within 11 overs to leave the holders reeling at 39 for 6.
