    Default Australia snap England's winning run

    England's run of six successive victories came to an end as they were blown away by Australia, who coasted to victory with seven wickets and 90 balls to spare after bundling England out for 168 at Lord's.

    134779 - Australia snap England's winning run

    With both teams assured of places in the quadrangular final at Wormsley on Thursday the match had nothing more than bragging rights at stake but Australia will take heart from piercing England's bubble.

    In a dominating performance Shelley Nitschke, Meg Lanning and Alex Blackwell lead the chase but the bulk of the work was done by bowlers who made Charlotte Edwards's decision to bat first backfire horribly.

    Edwards and Danielle Wyatt were pinned back by accurate new-ball bowling and England had just 18 on the board when Edwards was dismissed for 2, from 27, balls in the eighth over. Laura Marsh fell one over later for 3 and Wyatt and Claire Taylor fell in the 11th and 12th over to leave England floundering at 26 for 4. Clea Smith and Sarah Coyte shared the four wickets evenly and England were unable to rally.

    Lydia Greenway continued her good form, making 34 and sharing partnerships of 28 with Sarah Taylor and 42 with Arran Brindle but wickets kept falling. When Heather Knight was out for 13 England were 127 for 8 and 150 looked a luxury but Holly Colvin (29) and Danielle Hazell (19) carried them over the mark.

    168 was always going to be difficult to defend and Nitschke and Lanning did the key job of preventing the early wickets England needed to get back in the game. Instead they solidly built an opening stand of 54 that shut England out the game. Lanning was the more positive of the two, stroking nine boundaries in her 40-ball 43 while Nitschke dropped anchor. Leah Poulton fell to Wyatt for a duck but Blackwell rushed the chase to its conclusion with eight boundaries in her half-century. Nitschke was run out after reaching her fifty but by that stage Australia were as good as home.

    England will be disappointed to have lost their first match of the international summer but if they win in the final this result will quickly be forgotten.
