Half-centuries from Heather Knight and Sarah Taylor guided England to a five-wicket win against Australia in the third Women's Ashes One-Day International match at the County Ground in Hove on Sunday (August 25). Rain delayed the start of play for a little more than three hours, forcing the match to be reduced to a 36 overs-per-side affair.
England rallied admirably from 0-1 in the three-ODI series to win two on the trot to seal a series victory.
Chasing 204, England lost Charlotte Edwards, the captain, for 8 in the third over to Erin Osborne. Thereafter, Knight and Taylor came together and ensured the run-rate was always around the five-run mark, putting Australia under the pump. There was little respite for Australia as both Knight and Taylor kept pace with the other.
