Twitter Reactions: Australia thrash England to win their fourth Women’s World T20 title

Posted On / /

Australia registered an emphatic eight-wicket win over England on Saturday night to secure their fourth Women’s World T20 title.

England, led by Heather Knight, were bowled out for 105 with two balls remaining in Antigua.

Australia women were poor in the field but leg-spinner Georgia Wareham took 2-11 and completed a stunning run-out to restrict England at a low total.

All-rounder Ashleigh Gardner backed up her 3-22 with an unbeaten 33 as Australia chased down the target in 15.1 overs with 8 wickets in hand.

Earlier, after winning the toss and opting to bat, England women were unable to find any rhythm, with only Danni Wyatt (43) and the skipper Knight reaching double figures.

In comparison to their fielding, the Southern Stars were ruthless with the bat, as captain Meg Lanning and Gardner worked the ball around the ground with ease.

The chase looked too easy as the match came to a close with nearly five overs to spare – with some England players left in tears as Australia women celebrated their first World T20 title in last four years.
