England Women beat Australia in a Super Over in Canberra to get their first win of the Commbank T20I Tri-Series and their first under new Head Coach Lisa Keightley. Captain Heather Knight was the hero, recording her second career-best performance in two days - rescuing her side from 39/3 with an excellent 45-ball 78.

She was given great company by Fran Wilson who batted beautifully for her 39. With the ball, England were grateful to Nat Sciver who was parsimonious but the real stand-out performers were the spin twins of Sophie Ecclestone and Sarah Glenn who took 3/23 and 3/28 respectively.

It was a game that ebbed and flowed throughout, with Australian debutant Annabel Sutherland and Delissa Kimmince nearly snatching the game for the hosts. In the end, their thrilling late hitting saw the scores level. Ecclestone went for just 8 in Australia's Super Over and it was Knight herself who finished the job with consecutive fours off Ellyse Perry.

England will be thankful for having played two games that have gone to the final over in the extreme Canberra heat, perfect preparation for the World Cup proper.

The Commbank T20I Tri-Series now moves to Melbourne, with England's next game on Friday February 7 against India.
