England’s Women’s World Cup dream dies despite Nat Sciver’s sensational century as Australia claim victory in the final by 71 runs to scoop a record £1million prize in New Zealand

  • England were beaten by Australia in the Women’s World Cup final on Sunday
  • Lisa Keightley’s side were bowled out for 285, 71 runs short of Australia’s total
  • Australia, who were simply too good in New Zealand, have won a £1m prize pot 

England women were beaten by Australia in the Cricket World Cup final on Sunday, with Lisa Keightley’s side bowled out for 285 on a disappointing evening in New Zealand.

Australia put themselves in a commanding position earlier in the day, finishing their 50 overs on 356/5.

But England did not enjoy similar success when they took to the crease, with Matthew Mott’s team bowling them out with almost six overs remaining to scoop a record £1million winners’ cheque.
