Aus women thrash England by 8 wickets in final

Mumbai: Australia women dished out a clinical performance to notch up a comprehensive eight-wicket win over England women in an inconsequential T20 game of the tri-series here on Thursday.
The dead rubber turned out to be a one-sided affair with the Southern Starts chasing down a meagre 97-run target in 11.3 overs to avenge their previous game eight-wicket loss to England.
Earlier, Kimmince (3-20) was the pick of the Australian bowlers and she was superbly aided by Jess Jonassen (2-21) and pacer Megan Schutt (2-13) as they bundled out England for 96 to set up the win.
The two visiting teams had already booked a place in the final to be played on Saturday after India were knocked out following three losses.
Chasing the target, Australia had a bad start with opener Alyssa Healy (6) falling cheaply. They also lost Elyse Villani (1) early in the third over and were struggling at 12/2.
