- Second ODI: Australia 282-7 beat England 279-7 by three runs
- Sciver-Brunt hits epic 111 not out to take match to final ball
Australia retained the Ashes after beating England by three runs in this one-day international at the Ageas Bowl on Sunday, despite an unbeaten century from Nat Sciver-Brunt.
England had collapsed to 203 for seven when Sarah Glenn joined Sciver-Brunt at the crease, with an unlikely 80 runs needed from the remaining 68 balls to achieve their highest ever winning chase – but Sciver‑Brunt took just enough calculated risks to keep them in the hunt.
