Stars still bright


NOT even a consolatio­n win for England in the final Twenty20 could detract from the magnitude of what Australia’s champions have achieved this women’s Ashes series.

After clinching the urn in their last-start match in Brighton, the Southern Stars fell into the same trap as England did in the deadrubber fifth Test of the men’s Ashes, and were unable to harness that ruthless streak in Cardiff last night (Qld time) and lost by five wickets.

Ball has dominated bat all women’s Ashes and Australia once again collapsed to be 4-25 after six overs, and then all out for 111.
