Scorecard

The win wraps up the T20I series for Australia who have an unassailable 2-0 series lead ahead of Wednesday's final T20I.

The day started well for the visitors, captain Sophie Devine winning the toss and batting first on a slowing Allan Border Field pitch.Β 

Amy Satterthwaite was the key performer with the bat, finding the boundary at regular intervals, however, when she was stumped by a matter of millimetres, the innings lost impetus.Β 

The WHITE FERNS posted a middling 128, all out in the final over of the innings, a score that didn't trouble the Australian batting card.

Alyssa Healy got the chase off to a fast start with 33 off 17 balls, before Rachael Haynes and captain Meg Lanning secured victory in the 17th over.
