Australia Women

5.15pm: There is now an 11-day break until the Test match, but we will be back to bring you coverage of that must-win game (for England) and the T20Is to follow. Valkerie's report is up, detailing the extent of Australia's record-breaking day, which surely gives them one hand on the Ashes. Anyway, thanks for following and all your comments. From us it's bye for now!

5.05pm: Time for the presentations, starting with Heather Knight: [Batting today?] "Not good enough. It's very tough to take, because a lot of girls are hurting in that dressing room. Australia bowled well, they came at us hard and we didn't really have an answer to that. We haven't started how we wanted to with the bat, we haven't found a way to start our innings and get our feet going. But we can't feel sorry for ourselves, obviously it will hurt a lot but we'll have to turn this around very quickly to prepare for the Test match and try to restart the series because we're still a chance. We're still in the series and there's four points if we can win that Test match. We need to have honest conversations about why things haven't worked for us. Not sure why that is, but credit to Australia. They played brilliantly today and were too good for us. We know it was a good wicket, don't think there were demons in it and we pulled it back well, managed to stay in the game and thought at halftime it was a chaseable total. [Perry?] Very good spell, she came at us hard and we didn't have an answer for it, credit to her. We come out and try to win every game. The last two games were more frustrating, today we were blown away, First two we competed for long period of time. Today hurts more. [Preparation?] I thought it was reasonably odd, affected by the weather, not tested as much as we'd like but we played some good cricket. [Test match next?] We'll reassess where we're at and where we need to take it. We've got to go out there and be positive, change of format will be good for us. Got to play better as a top order and keep the good things we've had, believe in the dressing room we've got the skill and character to turn it around. We don't play any multi-day cricket, so we've got a warm-up game against Australia A and using the red ball, which we don't use very often. The A team play against Australia as well so there's opportunities there."

Australia's Meg Lanning: "Very pleased. I thought all-round we were even better than the last game. With the bat we were in a position to get a few more but England came back at us. But the bowling performance was excellent, Ellyse Perry leading the way. They've got good variety, use the conditions really, nice to see them doing well. We were in a position to get 300 but England adjusted their bowling, took pace off and slowed us down with wicket in the middle. But we knew if we did the same, attacked the stumps, we could do well with the ball, too. Our opening bowlers showed the way, put them under pressure and didn't give them balls to hit. [Surprised at margin?] It's been a little closer than the scoreboard suggests, the first game was close and we were lucky to get over the line. But we've been improving and we expect England to come at us hard again in the Test. We play the one-day format really well, got good variety and our batting is strong and deep. Our bowling has been excellent for a long time, tying the batting down and taking wickets. But now we have to turn our attention to a Test, which we don't play a lot. We'll play pretty similarly, try to take the game on as we always do. We've got options, but we feel in a good spot moving forward and hopefully we can play a really good game."

Ellyse Perry is Player of the Match: "Yeah, it was my day today, which was nice, but pleasing to win all three ODIs and finish this section of the series as we did. To be as comprehensive as we were was great. [Like Canterbury?] Fortunately I've played here before, the slope works really well for us, so it was nice to attack the stumps and let it swing down the hill a bit. But it worked today, Megan Schutt was brilliant at the other end and kept the pressure on. It's a beautiful ground, we've got some nice memories and nice to be on the top changing room with the balcony. Moving into red-ball cricket is exciting for everyone, many ways it's starting again, so we'll work with our coaches, and the next bit of prep should be really fun. [Tests different?] You've got more time, don't have to be too aggressive, keep asking questions and see how we go. It's an honour to play in this team, I've had 11 years and today one went my way."

Australia win by 194 runs. They go six points clear in this Ashes series and England need to win all four remaining games to win back the trophy. Ellyse Perry was the star today. She took 7 for 22, the best figures by Australian in women's ODI's and the fourth best figures of all time. She tore through England's top order. They wilted against some crafty late swing but in reality they struggled to do the basics of playing straight and covering the line.

Perko: "England should be made to follow on."

Perry finishes with 7 for 22 from her 10. She has the best figures by an Australian in an ODI and the fourth best of all time. Not bad for someone who has a Test double hundred!

No one has ever take 8 in a women's ODI. Perry has one ball to do it

Perry currently has the best figures by an Australian in an ODI. Shelley Nitschke took 7 for 24

Vinod Rajpal: "Good Eve Alex, Seems England Women are not upto their mark in Sports : In Soccer, they couldn't qualify for Finals; then yesterday they were denied 3rd place by Sweden & they are on the verge of whitewash in ODIs vs Aus in the Ashes !! Hope England Men can redeem some pride in CWC'19....any thoughts.. Alex ?" I can't comment on the football Vinod without seeing much of the tournament. But England's men will have a huge chance on Thursday. Especially if they win the toss.
