Defending champions Australia have won the ICC Women's T20 World Cup for record fifth time, outclassing India by 85 runs in the summit clash at Melbourne today.

Riding on blistering half-centuries by openers Alyssa Healy 75 and Beth Mooney 78 not out, Australia posted 184 at the loss of four wickets. The bowlers did the rest of the work with Megan Schutt taking four for 18 and Jess Jonassen 3 for 20. 


Appearing in the world cup final for the first time, India were bundled out for 99 in 19.1 overs.


India suffered a batting collapse as the top order batter Shafali Verma for 2, Smriti Mandhana for 11, Jemimah Rodrigues for duck  and skipper Harmanpreet Kaur for 4 departed inside the first six overs. Wicket-keeper Taniya Bhatia retired hurt in the second over after getting hit on her helmet of the bowling of left-arm spinner Jess Jonassen.



Deepti Sharma scored 33, Veda Krishnamurthy 19 while Richa Ghosh 14
