Blackwell, Gardner hold their nerve as Australia claim win in Ashes opener

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.
