England ended the Women's Ashes on a high with a convincing seven-wicket win over Australia in their final Twenty20 International at the Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street on Saturday (August 31).
After a collective effort from the England bowlers restricted Australia to 91 for 7 in 20 overs, England chased down the target comfortably, in 16.2 overs, to end with 12 points in the multi-format series.
It wasn't all smooth sailing for England though. Chasing a low total, their top three batters failed to get the chase going. Sarah Coyte, the quick bowler, had Heather Knight caught behind for a duck in the third ball of the innings and struck in her very next over to send Sarah Taylor, England's wicketkeeper, packing for 2. Holly Ferling, in only her second T20I, bowled Charlotte Edwards, the England captain, for 10 in the following over to leave England at 14 for 3 in less than four overs.
