Time for England Women Team to Shake Up, Says Ian Pont

Women's Ashes Preview- England v Australia- Fischer County Ground Leicester Britain

England were never in the hunt, scoring 133-9 for a record 93-run defeat.

With Winfield's dismissal, England could not do anything substantial with the bat as they were restricted to 133/9, handing Australia a win by 93 runs.

The victory retained the women's Ashes series but team achievements were overshadowed by Lanning's 63-ball exhibition, which included 17 fours and seven sixes.

Mott felt Lanning's skills particularly when it comes to cutting the ball were as good as anything he has seen in cricket. The last two T20Is will be played on July 28 and July 31.

Batting first, Australia managed to post a mammoth target of 226-3 in their 20 overs.

England were without first-choice keeper Sarah Taylor, who withdrew from the T20 leg of the series as part of the ongoing management of her anxiety issues. Fran Wilson has been named as Taylor's replacement. By that stage, Australia were 143 for 2, having just lost Mooney after a 134-run partnership with Lanning. Mooney (54) was finally sent back to the pavilion by Sophie Ecclestone in the 13th over, reducing Australia to 138/2.

It was Lanning's second T20I hundred, equalling Dottin and Danielle Wyatt's tally of T20I hundreds.

The Australian skipper had been short of her best earlier in the series, despite two half centuries in five innings visits to the crease, and was desperate tpo make a meaningful contribution. "She just went out there from ball one with great intent, hit the ball along the ground a lot and just threaded it through the field and it was great to watch".

"It's been closer than what scoreboard suggests, we've been able to win the big key moments in games and get some momentum, and were keen to keep going", Lanning said.

Ash Gardner also chipped in with 27 off 14 balls, as Australia beat their previous best score of 209 against the same opposition in Mumbai in 2018.

Megan Schutt was the pick of the Australia bowlers, who collectively picked up where the batsmen left off, keeping England under pressure.
