Countdown begins for T20 World Cup

Pain game Tammy Beaumont Sophia Dunkley and Sophie Ecclestone after England’s defeat, as Beth Mooney and Megan Schutt celebrate victory

Australia have wrapped up their fourth World Cup T20 crown, cruising past England in the final at Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in Antigua on Sunday.

"We look forward to working with host cities, venues, the community and all our partners over the coming months, so that both the women's and men's T20 World Cups in 2020 make up a spectacular celebration that everyone can be part of", he said.

Chasing a comfortable target, Australia raced to victory in 15.1 overs with Gardner and captain Meg Lanning remaining unbeaten on 33 and 28 respectively.

"There's no doubt that being professional allows us to put everything we can into becoming better cricketers and better people off the field as well", said Lanning.

Despite an enterprising 43 off 37 balls by England's opener Danielle Wyatt, it was a hard day for the 2009 champions as it lost wickets at regular intervals, despite Australia's sloppy fielding.

Elyse Villani held on to a skyer to extend Tammy Beaumont's disappointing tournament, and Georgia Wareham's rocket throw from mid-on caught Amy Jones short of her crease at the non-striker's end. "We want to be a very consistent cricket team and I think we have done that over the last few years without the success at world tournaments".

England hopes rose when Beth Mooney was caught for 14 off Danielle Hazell with their opponents needing 62 runs from 13 overs. Danni Wyatt started brilliantly, but we kept losing wickets at key times and weren't able to post a total that was competitive.

"We knew there would be dew, more dew than there was in the semis".

"We came with a lot of inexperience". Some of them have sat up brilliantly, ' said the captain.

"We probably didn't quite adapt to conditions as well as we could have. So for the team to embrace that - especially in the T20 format where we've got eight opening batters, but everyone was willing to sort of sacrifice their own game to try and win the game for the team - I think that's why we're standing here today as champions, because everyone was willing to be selfless and really just do what they can to win".

"So for us to continue the way we've been going and have such incredible support from CA, the public and family and friends is unbelievable".
