Australia Clinched Fourth Women's World T20 Final title.

Australia beat England to win the Fourth Women's World Twenty20 2018 Final.

    The Sixth edition of  2018 ICC Women's World Twenty20 cricket tournament was held in the West Indies among the Top 10 teams around the World from 9 to 24 November 2018 has come to end.

By entering in the 
fourth women's World T20 finals  & hoping to become the Women's double champion - the first tournament on home soil in 2009 is ruled out 105 Runs by Australian Women's in Antigua, WIndies.  

Due to poor performance in fielding, the leg-spinner Georgia Wareham took 2-11 & breaks their way to become the Women's T20 winners.

 Ashleigh Gardner made stunning performance in T20 Final, first takes 3-22 with a Not-Out 33 runs, Australia chased 105 runs with ease, total 29 balls left.  

 Now Australia made their place a record fifth time in the Women's World T20 Finals & Fourth-time Women's T20 Champions in the tournament, after successes in 2010, 2012 and 2014 Women's T20 winners.

After winning the toss and opting to bat, England was unable to find any rhythm, with only Danni Wyatt (43) and captain Heather Knight reaching double figures.

In comparison to their fielding, Australia was ruthless with the bat, as captain Meg Lanning and Gardner worked the ball around the field with ease.

The chase looked all too easy as the match came to a close with nearly five overs to spare - with some England players left in tears as Australia celebrated their first world title in four years.

What they Said: Winners,   Runners-up

Ex-England captain Charlotte Edwards on BBC Test Match Special:

"England have done really, really well. These two teams are the best-resourced teams in world cricket. England did lose their best two players before the tournament, but it would have been disappointing for them not to reach the final.

"England have unearthed some really special talent in this tournament, like Kirstie Gordon and Sophia Dunkley, but some of the senior players haven't performed."

England captain Heather Knight:

"We kept losing wickets at key times and weren't able to post a total that was competitive, but I'm proud of the girls for reaching another world final.

"We had a lot of inexperience out there, hopefully, this will make it better for them in the future. Australia was better than us, so congratulations to them. We're a bit raw at the moment."

Australia captain Meg Lanning:

"We haven't had the success we would have liked over the last couple of years.

"The last two World Cups hurt. We've had to change a few things and the group has really embraced that. This is a really satisfying win."

England coach Mark Robinson:

"There was an opportunity to win, and that's what you can't deny.

"We came in as slight underdogs. But the disappointing thing is, we got ourselves into positions. What we haven't been able to do, in this period of time, is get enough form and rhythm into the batters."
