Englad women beat Australia again

12:42 pm on 4 July 2009

England's all-conquering women's cricketers left it late to enjoy yet another win over Australia this season.

Laura Marsh's two runs off the last ball saw England beat Australia by two wickets to win the third one-day intenational at Stratford-upon-Avon and so take an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.

The fourth one-day international is on Monday at the late Sir Paul Getty's ground in Wormsley, north-west of London, before the series concludes at Lord's on Wednesday (all NZT).

England then defend the women's Ashes in a one-off Test at Worcester, where Australia's men are currently playing their final Ashes warm-up match, in a four-day match starting on July 10.
