Cricket archrivals, even on the women’s stage, England and Australia, easily passed their semifinal opponents to battle in the final.
The Aussies passed West Indies on Wednesday with a comfortable score. Australian women could win the game with the force of their opening batters, who delivered 214 runs. Thus, Haynes brought 85 runs while Healy added another 129 points. The first innings finished with a confident score of 305 for three.

The final score confirmed the crucial win by the Aussies, who overcame South Africa by 157 runs.
