- First T20: Australia 154-6 bt England 153-7 by four wickets
- Victory means Australia lead Women’s Ashes 6pts to 0
A record crowd of 19,527 watched as England came within a whisker of beating Australia at Edgbaston on Saturday evening, before the T20 world champions finally overhauled their target of 154 with just one ball to spare.
Captain Heather Knight had left the best bowler in the world, Sophie Ecclestone, to bowl the final over, with Australia needing five runs from it. Annabel Sutherland drove the first ball of the over down the ground for four, but Ecclestone then dived to save the single, and Amy Jones then took a tricky high catch off the bat of Sutherland.
