Australia hammer England for their fourth World T20 title 

North Sound, November 25

Ashleigh Gardner scored an unbeaten 33 as Australia beat England by eight wickets to win the women’s World T20 title on the Caribbean island of Antigua on Saturday. The Southern Stars easily chased down England’s total of 105 all out, polishing off the runs with 29 balls to spare in only 15.1 overs at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound.

The victory was their fourth world T20 title and comes at the end of a tumultuous year in which the men’s Test team was rocked by a ball-tampering scandal that led to year-long suspensions for captain Steve Smith and his deputy David Warner.
