The Australian Women's Cricket Team has suffered a 40-run loss to England in the second T20 INTL of the Commonwealth Bank Women's Ashes Series at Manuka Oval.

Needing 153 runs to win, Australian openers Beth Mooney (17) and Alyssa Healy (24) again made a fast start before Jenny Gunn dismissed them both. From then on Australia continued to lose wickets regularly, with only Rachael Haynes (14) and Delissa Kimmince (17) looking like turning things around, but neither were able to get the job done as Australia was eventually bowled out for 112.

The Wallabies have had their winning run ended in a controversial showdown with England on a rain-soaked Twickenham Stadium in London. England scored three tries in the final eight minutes to blow out the final scoreline to 30-6, however the game had taken a dramatic turn after a potentially match-levelling try to Marika Koroibete in the 70th minute was disallowed for an obstruction.

Trailling 13-6 after a tight first half and a try to England winger Elliot Daly in the 55th minute, the Wallabies looked to have broken through when Koroibete  spun over the line in the clutches of English flanker Chris Robshaw and tried to muscle the ball down.

Australia's National Selection Panel have named a 13-player squad for the first two Magellan Ashes Series Tests in Brisbane and Adelaide. West Australian Cameron Bancroft is set for his Test debut following solid performances in the Sheffield Shield this season. National Selector Trevor Hohns said Bancroft had earnt his call-up to the Test side.

“Cameron has been a player of interest to us for some time now, having been unlucky to miss out on the Test tour to Bangladesh that was cancelled in 2015. He is a very talented and tough cricketer who shows a good temperament for Test cricket. He has thoroughly earned and deserves his call-up following some outstanding performances in the early rounds of the JLT Sheffield Shield competition this season."

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.
