Australia crush India in the finals of the Women's T20 World Cup

*MELBOURNE – Australia beat India by 85 runs to win their fifth Women’s T20 World Cup title in front of 86,174 at Melbourne Cricket Ground.*

It was a near-perfect evening for the hosts, who posted 184-4 after a brutal 75 from Alyssa Healy and opener Beth Mooney’s unbeaten 78.

An overawed India slid to 18-3, with teenage star Shafali Verma falling to the third ball of the chase, and they were never in the game.

Megan Schutt again shone, taking 4-18 as India were bundled out for just 99 with five balls left.
