The Australian Women's Cricket Team suffered a 20-run defeat (DLS) in the third Commonwealth Bank Women's Ashes One Day International at Coffs International Stadium today.

For the second consecutive match, weather played a role with England's initial total of 8-284 reduced following two brief rain delays, meaning Australia needed 278 runs to win off 48 overs.

A half-century to Alex Blackwell and a brilliant all-round performance from Ashleigh Gardner has helped Australia to a two-wicket win in the opening One-Day International match of the Commonwealth Bank Women's Ashes Series at Allan Border Field in Brisbane. Much like the World Cup game between the two sides the result was still up in the air with six balls to go, but Blackwell took her side over the line.

After winning the toss and electing to bowl, Australia put in a disciplined bowling performance to restrict England to 9-228, with Gardner (3-47), Megan Schutt (2-44) and Ellyse Perry (2-50) the leading wicket-takers.

The impressive run by U.S. Under-17 Men's National Team at the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup came to an end in the Quarterfinal after a 4-1 loss to 2017 UEFA U-17 runners-up England. Josh Sargent's strike gave the USA hope late in the game and also tied him with Freddy Adu as the USA's leading all-time scorer in youth World Cups with seven goals.

A quick-fire brace from England's Rhian Brewster midway through the first half gave the USA a mountain to climb, and the U.S. didn't shy away from the challenge. Led by Sargent, Tim Weah and Ayo Akinola up top, the USA went about carving out numerous opportunities to get back in the game either through possession or, more often, in transition, where the team's lightning quick counters gave the England defense all it could handle.

Carlos Brathwaite has been added to the squad for the match. The 29-year-old has played 23 ODIs so far. He is the Windies Twenty20 International captain and led the team in the T20 win earlier in the tour.

 

England pace bowler James Anderson has grabbed the top spot in the ICC Test Player Rankings after his superb effort in the third and final Test at Lord’s helped England win by nine wickets to seal a 2-1 series victory over the Windies.

The 35-year-old’s career-best figures of seven for 42 in an innings and a match haul of nine wickets see him overtake India’s left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja, who he now leads by 12 points. The third and fourth places are also taken by spinners with India’s Ravichandran Ashwin and Sri Lanka’s Rangana Herath taking those positions.
