White Ferns out of T20 World Cup

The White Ferns have been knocked out of the Women’s T20 Cricket World Cup.

They were beaten by 4 runs against Australia in a sudden death pool match.

Australia batted first with left-hander Beth Mooney top-scoring with 60 as Australia reached 155-5.

Australian captain Meg Lanning and Ellyse Perry were the next highest scorers on 21 runs.

For the White Ferns, Anna Peterson was the pick of the bowlers, finishing with figures of 2-31.

In their turn to bat, New Zealand was on pace with Australia’s score after the powerplay.

However, young legspinner Georgia Wareham (3-17) and opening bowler Megan Schutt (3-28) kept the White Ferns in check.

Needing 10 runs to win from the final ball, the White Ferns finished off with a six.

The results mean Australia advance into the semi-finals with India from group A, joining England and South Africa from group B.

This week’s semi-finals will be held at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
