Sixers prominent as Southern Stars win Tri-Series

03 April 2018

Sydney Sixers trio Ash Gardner, Alyssa Healy and Ellyse Perry all featured prominently as the Southern Stars secured a 57-run victory over England in the final of the T20 Tri-Series in India.

Gardner (33 off 20 balls) and Healy (33 off 24 balls) got Australia off to a fast start, with the pair putting on a quick-fire 61-run stand before Gardner was caught in spectacular fashion by Sixers teammate and England wicketkeeper Amy Jones.

Meg Lanning (88 off 45 balls) and Ellyse Villani (51 off 30 balls) then combined to help Australia post an imposing total of 4/209 from their 20 overs.

Gardner (2/20 off 3 overs) was instrumental the ball during the England run chase, picking up the big wickets of Natalie Sciver (50 off 42 balls) and Jones (30 off 28 balls).

Perry also chimed in with figures of 1/35 off her four overs as England were restricted to 9/152.
